Six Hard Rock Drum Fills


Enjoy this selection of 6 hard rocking drum fills and beats. Listen to the audio example, print the notation, and take it to your music stand.

These fills sound great at both slower and faster tempos. Keep the hi-hat loose throughout. After learning these, experiment with moving your right stick to the ride cymbal, crash cymbal, or even a tom instead of the hi-hat. Have fun exploring!
