Drum Fill #15 – Power Fill – The Final CountdownNate Brown
Throughout most of the song, Ian Haugland drives the song with a single, heavy-rock beat. However, he also rocks some great fills that are worthy of study.
In this lesson, we’re going over Haugland’s 2-measure power-fill leading into the guitar solo of the song. Starting with one measure of a little syncopation and sixteenths, he explodes the second measure with 32nd note double bass strokes.
Don’t worry, however. The 32nd notes consist only of 2 strokes on the bass at a time. No speed-demon, monster feet needed. This fill is great for any level of double bass player.
