Steve Gadd – Linear Drum BeatAlex Ribchester
This is a Steve Gadd style linear rhythm with some 32nd note double chucked in there for an extra challenge! I found this a real tricky beat to get the hang of and I am still learning it to this day. The key to getting this one sounding half decent is to concentrate on getting the dynamics of the snare drum down. You have to be quite delicate with the ghost notes or the groove wont sound quite right. Once you are confortable with the pattern, try moving the right hand around the toms for slight variations too.
