    I'll take a shot at this. Quoting BG for Dummies, "Fills are mini-solos that give grooves a little flash every now and then." basically they are a short deviation from the repetitive groove usually at the end of the groove line to take things back to the top, add some variety and wow your audience. Listen to some Electric Six tunes for pretty straitforward examples.
