I don’t know how to define swing , but you can’t deny what a shuffle is …

The discussion / disagreement here seems to be that most think a drummer has to hit The downbeat on a shuffle.
I say no …

A swing has a “lope” it’s not square …
Like a tire that isn’t round …

A shuffle can bend either way round or oval …

Do you think Detroit Rock City shuffles ?

I’m going to say no . It’s more in between .
Peter Criss never got credit for how sneaky he could be …
Yes I do and I'm dying on that hill. ;)

It's hard to hear on that older recording, he's not playing doubles so that groove is back-beating. That's how I play it. I'll send you a recording next time I get around to it but I'm going with shuffle.

And yes, Criss was a master in the pocket.

I know what you’re hearing but it’s a 1/8th spacing that is tricking you .

The song heard it on the x has the same kinda thing but it’s a straight beat ..

Wasn’t there some talk somewhere about Peter not knowing how to play this and having a hard time learning it? Or was that just mudslinging from that frontman what’s-his-name?
