Inspired by Steve Gadd's unique drumming style, this lesson explores a sweet two-measure groove with some 32nd-note double stroke combinations between the hands and feet.
This week, we develop the idea presented in last week's practice pad pattern by orchestrating it around the drum kit.
This lesson explores a linear, 32nd-note drum fill for intermediate to advanced drummers.
This lesson builds upon last week's Thursday lesson by adding an extra measure of a more dynamic and complex sticking pattern to "buff" it up to a more advanced-level drum fill.
The Rosanna Shuffle is most likely one of the top 10 most famous beats of all time. However, we are going to make a little change to the groove, adding some extra ghost strokes that link up with the hi-hat on the third note of some of our 8th note triplets.
This week, we've got a glorious two (and a bit more) measure drum fill.
This week we're exploring a challenging 16th note triplet (sextuplets) drum fill. Every beat has a different sticking pattern that can be orchestrated around the kit in a number of ways. This fill is aimed at drummers that are of an intermediate to advanced level.
This week's lesson concludes the two-part series which explores developing an intermediate drum beat into a more advanced groove.
Learn a tasty groove with a tricky hi-hat pattern. The result is a polyrhythmic beat with a basic kick and snare pattern and an open hi-hat every three 16th notes. Combine this idea with another groove of your choice to create an awesome two-measure loop.
Learn an advanced, linear drum beat/fill idea inspired by the amazing Steve Gadd.
For this week's lesson we have got an advanced two measure groove that will help you improve you double stroke, kicks and ghost notes. The right hand plays quarter notes on the hi hat, crash etc while the kick and snare play combinations of 16th notes in a funk, metal, or rock context.
For this week's lesson we have got a continuation of last week's epic two measure drum fill that includes a more tricky first measure.
Steve Smith brings the Latin flavor to On Green Dolphin Street. Learn this great groove that keeps you moving around the kit in a fresh way.
For this week's drum lesson we return to the track 'Dysentery Gary', an early Blink 182 track with a cracking little latin groove in the pre-chorus. The groove has an up tempo bossa nova vibe, with right hand alternating between the bell and the ride, and the right foot playing the classic samba pattern.
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.
