I got this from Keyboard Magazine. Try playing eighth note riffs and break
them up into two groups of three, and one group of two.
Accent on the capitalized beats
ONE and two/ AND three and/ FOUR and. You can divide it any way you want:
ONE and/Two and three/AND four and etc. Change it up while you're playing.
You can of course hold a note for three eighth notes or play a three note
riff. You can also hold back and only play the accented notes.
Try it with straight eighths and then try swinging it.
It helps to have a metronome.
