This lesson explores one of my favorite exercises/warm-ups. This groove is a great way to work on your ghost strokes and double kicks. With all four limbs playing different patterns, it's an awesome independence workout, as well.
For this week's drum lesson we return to the track 'Dysentery Gary', an early Blink 182 track with a cracking little latin groove in the pre-chorus. The groove has an up tempo bossa nova vibe, with right hand alternating between the bell and the ride, and the right foot playing the classic samba pattern.
In this groove, the feet play a samba ostinato while the hands work together to play the syncopated rhythm. Which voicing do you prefer?
Patrick brings us part 2 of the Tresillo Cubano grooves. Enjoy this slick groove!
Patrick brings us some Tresillo Cubano Clave over the samba foot pattern in this week's Wednesday exercise.
Patrick delivers some Batucada exercises, a substyle of samba which refers to an African influenced Brazilian percussive style.
In this weeks lesson we have a go at the Bossa Nova drum beat. This groove hails from Brazil with its roots in samba. This can be a tough nut to crack with a variety of ostinatos being played with each limb. In this lesson we break it down in to manageable chunks and bring it all together at the end.
In this exercise example, Patrick lays down some wicked grooves with a latin spice. These are great coordination exercises. Enjoy!
The following from Daily Drum Warm-Ups is the last sample page that I'm including for this blog. However, I will continue to contribute entries on a weekly basis, creating new content and demonstrating different ways to apply exercises to the drumset....
This groove builds from last week's "Samba Foot" drum lesson. This beat continues the samba foot pattern, but also includes a 3-note ostinato pattern with the right stick, as well as some other embellishments.
