    I used to listen to gospel a lot. I don't really like it now but if you're talking about southern gospel, I would suggest some traditional country rhythms. Like, BOOM CHICK BOOM CHICK BOOM CHICK.

    I understand that adcc is talking about what's being popularized as "gospel" right now, so I'll make the distinction. Gospel is a style of music used in churches and other religious settings, whereas what we call "gospel chops" are essentially 16th note triplet patterns (primarily). Depending on where you accent the patterns you can get that quick, broken, but not out of time feel you're looking for. Here are three patterns to work on (played as 16th note triplets)


    Try playing each, and then start combining them.
