Billy Ashbaugh: 1/2 Time Shuffle #4 - Workout #1

by billy ashbaugh on 10/22/2010 | 6,707 Views | 0 Comments

This is the final version of adding ghost notes to our 1/2 Time Shuffle. Today we're going to add the middle triplet to beat 3. This can be a little tricky at first. Remember you have to still hit the back beat as a rim shot then quietly tap the ghost note immediately after. I recommend getting the hand pattern down first, before you try playing the kick drum patterns from the PDF download. This is my favorite version to play. Enjoy!

Polyrhythmic Hi-Hat Ostinato (3rd Sixteenth) Drum Lesson: How To Play Polyrhythms Within Drum Beats

by webadmin on 06/16/2010 | 8,187 Views | 4 Comments

http://www.DrumsTheWord.com This video is about a cool idea I've seen Gavin Harrison and Danny Carey demonstrate at clinics and on video. These drummers are able to play odd grouped Hi-Hat ostinatos over the top of even metered grooves. This creates a polyrhythm between the Hi-Hat and the Snare and Bass drum where it sounds like the Hi-Hat is playing one rhythm while the Snare and Bass play another. In this video I'll show you exactly how to construct a certain type of polyrhythmic groove and hopefully give you some new and exciting ideas to work on. The written notation for each example will be appearing at the bottom of the screen as I play. Please rate and/or comment this video if you found it useful. I'd love to know what you think!
