he grooves in Tough Mama by Bob Dylan (1973, Planet Waves Album) are a perfect example of the “concealing the backbeat” technique. The listener temporarily loses the placement of the backbeat on the snare, and then when it falls back on it sounds sweet and clean.
This lesson shares the technique of echoing the snare, which is playing a ghost stroke after the snare drum stroke to create an echo effect. The beats that follow apply techniques taught in previous lessons in order to build the beat.
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.
