lesson we look at a cool 16th
fill that can be re-orcherstrated around the drumkit
in many ways. Let's first learn the core sticking
pattern on the snare drum, nice and slow. Here is
the core pattern:
You can see that from beat 1+ onwards, we are
playing a repetitive R, L, L cycle across the entire
bar. Using an odd number grouping (3) inside an even
number subdivision (4) in this fashion is called
"cross phrasing" or "phrasing around the beat", and
it makes for some really funky, interesting fills.
Make sure you're paying particular attention to
the difference in volumes between the R and L hands,
keep those L notes very low in stick height.
Next we will move the RH accents around the toms..
