Hello and welcome to the 14th Odd Groupings lesson. This time we have a fun bunch of exercises that will help free up your right hand.
Hello and welcome to the 12th Odd Groupings lesson. This time we will be taking a grouping of five and applying it through 16ths. This really is an extension from Odd Groupings Part 3 so if you haven’t checked that out yet. I would do so first. This approach allows us to look at various permutations in one exercise and can be good fun as well.
Welcome to the second instalment of “Thrown For A Loop”. In this lesson we will be looking at a couple of DJ Shadow breaks. In my opinion, one of the best non-drumming drummers if that makes sense. He has also been a the front of sample based music with his 1996 album, “Endtroducing…..” famously being made up almost entirely of samples.
In the second instalment of the 6-stroke roll I just want to go over the two main feels. There is the more traditional variation and the more contemporary version. Another way of thinking about it is, the straight and the triplet based version. This is also a great way of warming up your hands with accents, singles and doubles and also changing subdivisions over a left foot pulse.
