3 THINGS TO LISTEN FOR

CONCEPT #1 : VINNIE PLAYS OVER-THE-BARLINE
Vinnie often plays "over-the-barline," meaning he's not tied to playing the downbeat of every measure.

CONCEPT #2 : VINNIE'S PHRASING
For example, Vinnie often resolves his phrases on the "+ of 7" rather than on the 1. Super hip!

CONCEPT #3 : VINNIE'S USE OF IMPLIED METRIC MODULATION
Vinnie also IMPLIES several time-feels / meters throughout. For example, notice when he plays groupings of 3 on the bell of the ride cymbal while still playing in 7!

***The big-picture goal should be to choose your favorite Vinnie ideas/concepts and incorporate them into your own playing.
