In this lesson, we are going to add pairs of snappy 32nd notes between the hi hats to add a bit of spice to our grooves. This is a cool little concept that has been often used by some of my favourite drummers such as Abe Cunningham from Deftones and Travis Barker from Blink 182. This video is also serving as a testrun for future videos with both my drums and voice miked up. Let me know what you think and bare in mind that this is merely a tester.
Pulling a concept form the chorus of Headstrong by the band Trapt, this lesson focuses on stopping short. A coool technique to add a unique flavor to your grooves. Play around with stopping short on some of your beats to see what you can come up with.
