Cool Drum Fill For Beginners

Cool Drum Fill For Beginners

In this weeks lesson I have prepared a sweet sounding drum fill using 16th note triplets. The idea is to promote a quicker hand speed when playing around the kit, while keeping the volume fairly low to avoid tensing up while playing. We will be playing single strokes, so it is nice and simple to play. Lets see how fast we can go!  This first example is the basic sticking played on the snare alone.

Drum Fills & 32nd Notes

Drum Fills & 32nd Notes

In this week's lesson we have got another great sounding drum fill idea that works great in any mid-tempo or double time groove. We begin with a basic R L K pattern using 16th notes and then have a go at doubling the notes with the hands and playing four 32nd notes, followed by a 16th note kick drum. When we get the hang of that, we then finish of the lesson by doubling the kick drums to create a solid 32nd note drum fill.
