These exercises serve as a great workout for improving coordination, dexterity, and timing around the kit. They also make unique-sounding, punchy drum fills to use within your own playing.
Learn a fun solo idea inspired by Led Zeppelin's ferocious drummer, John Bonham.
This week, we develop the idea presented in last week's practice pad pattern by orchestrating it around the drum kit.
This week we're exploring a challenging 16th note triplet (sextuplets) drum fill. Every beat has a different sticking pattern that can be orchestrated around the kit in a number of ways. This fill is aimed at drummers that are of an intermediate to advanced level.
Because triplets are phrased in threes (as the name "triplet" implies), playing them in groups of two creates a syncopated feel. In the examples below, the toms change every two strokes (i.e. groups of two) within the triplets.
Learn a handful of easy-to-grasp triplet fills that sound great. In this lesson, we explore re-orchestrating these patterns around the kit.
Enjoy a cracking little fill that finishes with a big whack on the snare on beat 4, creating a nice dramatic pause before returning to the groove. The sticking is a nice and simple RLRLKK played as 16th-note triplets orchestrated around the kit.
For this week's lesson, we have got a cool sounding 4 measure sequence of different 16th note triplet sticking patterns played around the kit. The idea is to practice linking these patterns together to help build drum solo and drum fill vocabulary.
Learn an easy-to-play drum fill that sounds more difficult than it is.
In this week's drum lesson we have got a sick sounding sextuplet drum fill that explores some of the many treats that the six stroke roll has to offer. The entire fill is played between the kick snare and hi hat, but can be played creatively around the kit.
For this week's lesson we have got a cool tom groove using the paradiddle-diddle rudiment as 16th note triplets.
For this week's lesson we have got a sexy, over the top two measure sextuplet/16th note triplet drum fill combining a number of various sticking patterns around the kit. Enjoy!
For this week's lesson we have got a cool intermediate level drum fill using 16th note triplets broken up by some 8th notes to give the fill a syncopated vibe while at the same time orchestrating the lick around the kit.
This lesson sheet accompanies Alex Ribchester's video lesson focusing on some sixteenth note triplet ideas.
