YOUR VERY FIRST DRUM LESSON

   

In this lesson we look at the important link between the most basic 8th note rock beat, and how many of the more advanced styles that you learn later on are merely additions to this beat. If we take the basic 8th note beat, of 1 and 3 on the bass drum and 2 and 4 on the snare drum, then add other snare and bass notes to it, this is how we arrive at many of the more popular beats. Watch the video for full details.
