Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Enlightening Stuff. This gives a good explanation of different genres beats/grooves. What I learned here should be useful in future projects.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from Meh. Too brief. I was hoping for a tour across lots of different musical genres and to find out what the characteristic grooves are for each. Unfortunately he only briefly mentions 3 or 4 electronic genres. Nice idea but missed potential.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from thumbs up! This was great. Josh is easy to follow and learn from, and this explanation of the groove pool has given me some new breathing room for creativity. That was a really cohesive explanation of swing. I'm an Ableton user so that also made this video extremely useful for me. Thanks
