Mellow Beats For Songwriters Collection



Merely turning down the volume of an aggressive beat will not make it sound gentle, in the same way turning down yelling does not make it into a whisper.

This collection of beats is for musical settings where you need a light groove from the drums. They sound as if your drummer is playing lighter because they are at half the velocity of regular drum beats. This is the way session greats used to play drums back in the ’60s, ’70s, and even ’80s. Use them for your original songs or classic favorites in a variety of genres: Pop, Light Rock, Acoustic, Ballads, Blues, Country, Smooth Jazz, and more. This collection takes advantage of the Retro Custom Drumset.
