Alex brings us another fun linear beat and fill drum lesson. Be sure to check out his accompanying video walking you through these grooves.
The drum fills below emphasize the “E's” and “Ah's” by using the bass drum and the snare drum. Naturally, these drums stand out more because of the snare drum's attack and the bass drum's thump. Each of these fills have the bass drum on the “E,” and then the snare drum on the “Ah.” The third example places both of the first two fills together into a full-measure drum fill. For those of you linear fans, these fills are also considered linear fills because no two drums play together.
In this lesson I want to focus on a recent chart-topping hit: The Phoenix by Fall Out Boy.
This sheet explores different backbeat concepts. Backbeats have a strong influence on the feel of the groove. Use these rhythms to learn the feel of each particular backbeat.
