This is a great drum fill idea that uses a 'herta' sticking pattern. It is a 16th note followed by two 32nd notes followed by another 16th note. L rlr L rlr L rlr L rlr LRLL. It sounds awesome when played around the kit using the toms. It also works well, when played between the snare, hats and kick drum in a drum n bass style context. Either way.... have some fun coming up with your own ideas with it
Here are 3 simple grooves that will help develop some crucial skills for any drummer who has recently picked the sticks.

Give this vid a thumbs up if you want more lessons of this nature - ideas for aspiring drummers.
This is a great little fill idea that drummers of all abilities to have a bit of fun with. Hope you enjoy!
This is a Steve Gadd style linear rhythm with some 32nd note double chucked in there for an extra challenge! I found this a real tricky beat to get the hang of and I am still learning it to this day. The key to getting this one sounding half decent is to concentrate on getting the dynamics of the snare drum down. You have to be quite delicate with the ghost notes or the groove wont sound quite right. Once you are confortable with the pattern, try moving the right hand around the toms for slight variations too.
This is a simple concept that is great for creating your own drum fills. In this video we use 3 different sticking patterns A is R,Kick,R,Kick B is R,L,R,Kick and C is R,L,R,L. Each of these patterns are in 16ths and we are randomly piecing them together to create a cool fill. This is a great idea for beginners to start introducing the Kick drum into 16th note drum licks.
