Steve Gadd – Linear Drum Beat

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.

Beat Development And Cool Grooves

In this video lesson, I thought we could build a cool sounding drum groove by adding notes, changing voices, and experimenting with dynamics. We start off with a relatively simple groove and gradually develop the idea so that we end up with a much busier groove. The idea of this lesson is that we can give a bit of variation to the beat, without straying too far from the origional concept, while coming up with a number of cool sound grooves on the way.
