    Default Mike Adamo "Fills" from Big Beat Bible. Are these really "Fills"

    On pages 128/9 Mike has a chapter entitle "Fills"
    I would consider those grooves rather than fills.
    He indicates to play a 2 bar phrase before the "fills" but the two bar phrase also looks like a groove to me.

    Am I misinterpreting something here

    (My contribution should be taken with a grain of salt, since I have not seen the book in question):
    I would consider anything (grooves included) that breaks away from an established rhythm to be a fill. In my opinion, a "fill" doesn't have to utilize the whole drum set.
