Hello and welcome to the fifth instalment of the odd groupings series. In this lesson we will be looking at a slightly less obvious grouping of either 5 and 4 or 3 depending on how you feel or count it. When it comes to applying these patterns I have used a jazz approach but please do experiment and have some fun!
Welcome to part 3 of the series. In this lesson we are going to look at one way to play a three note grouping. Not only is this really going to help you strengthen your bass drum speed and independence, but it also sounds cool! It’s a short but focused lesson that should hopefully prepare you for some of the more intricate patterns to come.
Hello! I am currently on the road with Big Boy Bloater and the LiMiTs, touring our new album, Luxury Hobo. Following on from my last blog when I was on tour with CASH and choosing cymbals based on a vintage sound, I thought would write a little about my experiences recording with my Istanbul Mehmet cymbals and also how I have had to adapt some of the recorded sounds for live situations.
