Boz Scaggs - Lowdown

Please click image to view larger version.

Here's another classic Jeff Porcaro groove from Boz Scaggs' Silk Degrees record. The heart of this one is the tasty, subtle ghost notes after the backbeats on the snare. This track has an overdubbed 16th note hihat pattern and is pretty quick at around quarters = 115 bpm.

For more Porcaro genius check out Boz Scaggs' Lido Shuffle and Toto's Rosanna.

Eighth notes? He's doing sixteenths on the hi-hat.
