Let's Trade Fours: Rock @ 120 BPM

by drumennut on 02/11/2011 | 3,878 Views | 3 Comments

This is a play along video of me trading fours with you. Plug in your head phones and let's trade fours. If this works I plan on doing lots of styles and tempos.  It starts off simple and gets more complex as it goes, but I never really get to crazy so you should be able to play right along and have fun.  Let me know if there are any styles you would like to trade fours in.  Thanks

Billy Ashbaugh: Hi-Hat Up Beat Groove Idea #1

by billy ashbaugh on 10/30/2010 | 14,886 Views | 3 Comments

Today’s lesson will take a look at playing the & or up beat pattern on the hi-hat during a groove. For now the snare will continue to play a nice solid rim shot for beats 2 & 4. This can feel a little strange if it’s your first time trying this. We’re going to ease into this by only playing 8th note figures on the kick drum for now. Don’t forget to download the PDF file for 12 one bar grooves to practice. Enjoy!

I’ll also share a couple of ways to work on playing two quick notes back to back with a single pedal. Enjoy!
