In part two of “5+7=12” we are going to look at a couple more applications of 5757. We will start off where we left off and then move onto some examples using the bass drum to break up the hands.
Hello and welcome to a new series of blogs. In this and following lessons I will be sharing some of my favourite drum loops and grooves. I am going to mostly focus on more “electronic” genres as often these get overlooked as there isn’t always an actual drummer involved. Sometimes it will be a drummer playing the groove, other times it will be a programmed beat or a sample from another song.
Hello and welcome to the fifth instalment of the odd groupings series.
