This was a requested lesson, in which we are going to take a look at the main groove from the track Born To Hula by Queens Of The Stone Age, a track that is not on any of their released albums from the year 2000. It is an interesting idea that includes a 32nd note over beats 3&4.
In this lesson Nate Brown demonstrates and explains the grooves from Something Good Can Work by Two Door Cinema Club
In this lesson we look at playing an epic sounding drum fill that can be played as either 2 measures 16th notes or a single bar of 32nd notes. In this video, I will be mainly looking at playing it as a 32nd note lick. The pattern consists of groupings of 4 and 6, with a single quarter note at the end. This fill uses a slightly more challenging sticking pattern, with double strokes, accents, ghost notes and kicks.
ZZ Top drives the rock shuffle to the top of the charts with La Grange. In this lesson, we'll look at the rock shuffle, groove timing and some triplet fills used in La Grange by ZZ Top.
In lesson we look at playing a pattern of solid 8th notes between the kick and snare drum with the hats as a single measure/bar drum break. This is a cool idea in which you can experiment with a number of ideas without venturing too far from the main groove. You can also use this concept for making up some interesting drum beats, or mix them in into a 2 bar drum groove.
