Help! Offbeat gospel lick explanation wanted


New member

Aaron Spears offers a great example, but his explanation wasn't nearly as good. He basically says, "just feel it." As someone who wants to figure out how to construct these kinds of fills that "shift the one," I need a more structured explanation. Can anyone point me to a "how-to" guide or at least tell me what I should Google? Or anyone know of videos that offer a better explanation?

I'm doing more gospel, and I know tons of gospel drummers incorporate these kinds of fills. I just need to know where I can get started.
