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.

In lesson we look at playing a pattern of solid 8th notes between the kick and snare drum with the hats as a single measure/bar drum break. This is a cool idea in which you can experiment with a number of ideas without venturing too far from the main groove. You can also use this concept for making up some interesting drum beats, or mix them in into a 2 bar drum groove.

Here is a great idea in which we are subdividing 16th notes in to four groups of 3 and one group of 4 played between the hands and kick drum. This concept has a great feel to it and will catch the listener off guard, which is always a good thing. In this lesson we shall be exploring a number of ideas you can use this idea between the kick, snare, and hats. I might do a part 2 and mover the idea around the kit if you want me too.
