Block Rockin’ Beats – Autographed Giveaway

Don't miss your chance this December to win an autographed copy of Dawn Richardson's Block Rockin' Beats

Sweet Beat and Drum Lick

This is a great sounding drum beat, which for me, has elements of Hip Hop and a bit of Funk. The groove is a basic kick and snare rhythm, with the right hand playing solid 16th notes. Mid way through the beat, we are going to bring the left hand up to the hi hat to provide us with some 32nd notes. On the 'a' of beat 2, we are going to play two 32nd notes on the kick drum. The drum fill is a simple RLRLKK played twice, followed by four 32nd notes on the snare. This fill also works as a full measure 16th note pattern.
