Hi everybody!! Here some patterns for you to have fun with.
Because drumming is a very physical thing and you have to have everything under control , so forget drugs ! After 20 Years playing drums I tell you: I do know better
|People ask a lot about the rhythms from Brazil and how they could learn it. My advice: take some Brazilian percussion instruments and try to learn first to play the different percussion rhythms from Brazil. It will be much easier to start with, than to apply those to the drumset.|
|A last word for
Never give up!!It doesnīt matter what people say. Practice hard and try to be honest to yourself.Be patient if you want to progress in your drumming and keep that attitude. You will make it!!
Here some rhythms for you
|In this exercise, first you play the sistem with your right and left feet and right hand,until you get comfortable .After you get that start playing around the kit with your left hand the differents examples .Than the right the hand and finally with alternate sticking (Right ,Left hand)|
In this exercise first keep your feet going until you get comfortable with them.
Then play the different variations around the drums set (toms,snare,cymbal,etc)
The following ostinatos are very good for to keep something going during a solo,,,you can play against that...inside that...etc...start by playing with the right and left hand the exercises 1 to 10,than all possible hand combinations on top of the Ostinato 1.In Ostinato 2 play all kinds of triplets on the top of what you are playing with your feet.Practice both ideas slowly...have fun!!!
| In this exercise you work in your bassdrum,snaredrumcontrol.
This is really a great exercise for endurance, Start slowly then speed up then keep the speed then You should also practice starting with your left hand and playing instead the bassdrum your hihat , left bassdrum or left double pedal.
