Hi-hat Technique from Sultans of Swing

Hi-hat Technique from Sultans of Swing - Drum Beat

Print This Drum Beat

This upbeat rock beat uses an open hi-hat technique to lift the second bar of the repeat.

Pick Withers uses a slick open hi-hat pattern in the drum part for Sultans of Swing – Dire Straits. By reserving the open hats to only the second bar of the 2-bar groove, Withers mixes a straight rock groove feel with a disco-esque feel for a great result.
