A Cool Tom Groove & Fill (With A Bit Of Splash)

This is a cool idea for a drum fill or a groove played around the kit using sextuplets. It has you crossing your hands over each other, so it looks pretty sweet too. It has a clear pulse to it, so it also works great as a 4/4 groove. Finally we are going to add open and closed hi hats with the left foot as explained in Nate Brown's video lesson -'Make it Splash'.

Getting More From The Basics.

This is a funky little groove playing 16th notes between the hi hat and snare, with the bass drum landing on beat 1 and the '&' of beat 3. Notes played on the hats should be heavily accented to ensure that they cut through. The snare should be accented on the usual, beats 2 and 4. You can make it your own by playing more kick drums with open hi hats..... its quite fun.
