Cool Tom Groove With A Tribal VibeAlex Ribchester
This is a nice little idea in with a tribal feel to it. It sounds cool and comes to life when you add the kick drum on the quater notes. There are snippets of polyrhythms going on at times, which makes the groove a little more challenging. The first thing you want to do is get the hand pattern down. Feel free to move the sticking pattern around the kit, as I am sure it will sound cool when used with more toms. For more advanced players, try applying a samba rhythm with the feet underneath the hand pattern.
