We’re still playing a steady flow of 16th notes phrased as Paradiddles with accents on beats 2 and 4.  The idea is to download the PDF file that has 12 one bar patterns to practice playing on the kick drum. These rhythms are getting busier so it’s also a great workout for your kick drum as well. Enjoy!

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

by billy ashbaugh on 10/30/2010 | 14,880 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!

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

by billy ashbaugh on 10/22/2010 | 6,616 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!
