‘Home At Last’ was Donald Fagen and Walter Becker’s first experience of Bernard Purdie’s unique Purdie Shuffle (it would later materialise on Gaucho’s ‘Babylon Sisters’ in 1980). On the track the writers were searching for a shuffle feel but one with air and space. Bernard intuitively knew a half-time shuffle would tick both boxes and proceeded to play the Purdie Shuffle.
In this package all of the key elements of both the groove itself and the overall performance are broken down and demonstrated in detail, supported by a note-for-note transcription and talk-through info sheet. And once you’re ready to play there are two backing tracks, one with a click and one without.
