How to Play the Drums: 2 Basic Snare Patterns on a Kit

http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/1650-28-how-to-play-the-drums-snare-drum Now that we are used to playing and counting semiquavers or sixteenth notes as we can also call them, we can learn to play semiquaver patterns on the snare drum with a steady quaver high hat pulse. This means that sometimes the left hand will play on the snare drum without the right hand on the high hat being with it. Quite a few of the snare drum rhythms will also be dotted rhythms. In this lesson, you'll review 8 specific beats. These will all involve a steady quaver high hat pulse, and as you progress, they will become more complex. This lesson is excerpted from a broader course available from www.begindrumming.com. The Begin Drumming course is a 100% comprehensive drumming course which takes you from absolute beginner to expert soloist without any gimmicky short cuts! Through a combination of video and written lessons, the course will teach you proper technique as well as how to read drum music.
