My point, lads, is that the Purdie shuffle--if we're defining it as a discrete, unassailable groove in which certain things happen and are played in a certain order--is a thing that exists regardless of time signature. You're letting the tail wag the dog. Again, I know it's a philosophical/semantic thing, but the Purdie shuffle is the Purdie shuffle is the Purdie shuffle. Don't tell me I can't call it that just because I'm superimposing it over some other time signature. Not thatI would. That's my issue here.
