8th Note Jailbreak SampleNate Brown
This lesson demonstrates a sample exercise from Patrick Marsepoil's latest ebook, 8th Note Jailbreak and some applications for around the kit.
Playing the exercises as written throughout the book is great, but there is a lot of opportunity for expanding these around the kit. This lesson explores using the ride bell instead of the hi-hat to really bring out the cymbal patterns. We also explore using the groove (or half of the groove) as a drum fill. We also take a quick look at how to create tribal-esque tom grooves from the book’s exercises.
The overarching goal of this lesson (and most of my lessons) is to encourage you to think creatively. Playing things as written is valuable and important. So is creating your own unique drumming style from ideas that you explore.
Keep exploring and creating!
