This week's lesson is part 1 of a 2 part series on developing a groove and then increasing its complexity.
For this week's lesson we have got the return of '4 Bars Of Fun' in which we work on a new idea/concept in the form of a 4 measure sequence.
Moving your right stick to the snare instead of the hi-hat can produce a unique sounding groove. You can further develop the groove by moving the right stick back and forth around the toms.
This sheet music accompanies Nate Brown's video drum lesson. Learn a few simple techniques to make beats that you already play sound differently-better.
This lesson takes a step back to examine the grooves we play, breaking down and discussing two of the most used patterns in drumming. Being able to recognize and play these patterns will help you to grasp new grooves more quickly.
This sheet accompanies Nate Brown's video lesson discussing and demonstrating two of the most common and basic patterns used in drumming.
This week's lesson sees the return of 4 bars of fun, where we come up with a 4 bar loop which focuses on improving a particular aspect of our drumming. In this case we are looking at improving our kick drum independence as well as our double kicks with a hip hop feel.
This sheet music focuses on bass drum foot development in the context of sixteenth notes. Enjoy these 4 bars of hip hop and watch the accompanying video drum lesson.
I receive a lot of questions asking for ways to help unlock the hi-hat hand from the bass drum foot. The answer is – repetition. The more you play these types of patterns, the easier it will be to keep consistent hi-hat strokes while playing 16th notes on the bass drum.
This sheet music accompanies Nate Brown's video drum lesson laying out some common bass drum patterns, phrased in sixteenth notes. Use these patterns to build independence with your bass drum foot.
This week I'd like to share a slick groove and fill from the final verse of Bring Me To Life by Evanescence.

This sheet accompanies Nate Brown's video drum lesson walking note-for-note through the middle section of Black Dog.
In this lesson, we start with foundational groove and then embellish it by moving strokes to the toms. This sheet is organized so that each groove keeps all of the toms from the previous groove while adding more. This technique creates a melodic layer to the groove, which can be used for drum beats or drum fills. It's also a great technique to keep a song progressing through 1st verse, 2nd verse, etc.
This sheet music accompanies Nate Brown's video lesson called Tom Craze, which uses a foundational groove to create some great sounding drum beats.
