In this lesson we look at playing an epic sounding drum fill that can be played as either 2 measures 16th notes or a single bar of 32nd notes. In this video, I will be mainly looking at playing it as a 32nd note lick. The pattern consists of groupings of 4 and 6, with a single quarter note at the end. This fill uses a slightly more challenging sticking pattern, with double strokes, accents, ghost notes and kicks.
This sheet music accompanies Alex Ribchesters video drum lesson titled Epic Drum Fill Idea.
Patrick continues to pick at the paradiddle this week by throwing in some creatively placed accents. Enjoy the snare version and then move it to the drum set, if you're daring .
This is the groove I used in a 30 second drum solo for DrumOffTV, and as promised this is a break down of that beat. It is simple as a 16th note pattern but gets a little more tricky when you add the 32nd note doubles.
