Simple Power Fills – Charlie Watts StyleNate Brown
Charlie Watts uses simple yet powerful fills in Gimme Shelter. In this lesson, learn his technique and ways to easily make it your own.
Using only quarter notes, eighth notes or a combination of the two, Watts creates explosive power-fills that sound a lot more difficult to play than they actually are. This technique is easily accessible for beginner drummers and is a technique to be considered for experienced drummers, as well.
If you’re a beginner-intermediate level drummer, or if you’re a teacher with beginner-intermediate level students, Gimme Shelter is a perfect song. It also works great as a fun sight-reading piece for more experienced drummers. Jam along with this Rolling Stones classic.
