This lesson explores a fun two bar drum fill using a couple of 4 and 6 note sticking patterns. It works great as a fast two-measure 16th note drum fill, or you can blast it out as a single-measure 32nd note drum fill. The right hand plays the accents. The left hand plays the ghost strokes, and there are a few kicks in there, too.
This lesson presents an 8 measure exercise with a call & response concept. Essentially we have got a series of 2 bar phrases in which the first measure is always the same groove, followed by a different kick, snare pattern as a response. This is a great way of adding musicality to you grooves and some cool ideas for new drummers.
For this week's lesson, we have got a cool rock groove on the toms. We start off by learning both bars between the kick, snare and hi hat and then orchestrate the idea around the toms.
For this week's lesson we have got a sweet 2 measure drum beat played predominantly on the hi hats. With a combination of accents, a stepped hi hat, and an almost completely linear sticking pattern, we get a cool half time funky groove.
For this week's lesson we have got an epic sounding drum fill that consists of a single rudiment - the 6 stoke roll. Using a couple of voicing ideas between the snare, kick and crash we can play some cool patterns that you might recognize from various drum solos.
For this week's lesson we have got a tricky little groove with a hip hop vibe. We start off with a cool 4/4 beat with some nice ghost notes and then layer an alternative hi hat ostinato over the top.
For this week's drum lesson we have got a nice little drum fill that can be played as either two bars or 16th or a single measure 32nd note drum fill. Using a combination of RLKK and RLRLKK and with some cool orchestrations this fill works well in rock, pop, or metal contexts.
For this week's lesson we have got an ever so slightly varied version of the opening drum beat from the new Blink 182 track 'Bored To Death' with Travis Barker on drums. We will be playing solid 16th notes with the hands at a high tempo and so this will prove a great workout for those quick ghost notes.
In this week's drum lesson we have got a sick sounding sextuplet drum fill that explores some of the many treats that the six stroke roll has to offer. The entire fill is played between the kick snare and hi hat, but can be played creatively around the kit.
For this week's drum lesson we have got a cracking 12/8 groove and fill for beginner to intermediate level players. The faster you play it the harder it becomes. However, this combo of beat and lick will sound great at almost any tempo.
For this week's lesson we have got another fun two measure dum fill using 16th notes around the kit. Intermediate to advanced level.

For this week's lesson we have got a cool 2 measure drum beat played predominantly on the snare drum with the hands occasionally hitting the hi hat with or without a kick. The aim is to improve our left hand and right foot coordination and avoid playing flams between the kick and hats.
