DRUMMING CONCEPTS & EXERCISES

Performing a dense , fast paced fill coming from a slow or half speed groove can “energize” the music and be exhilarating for the listener. But it’s not usually easy to do-especially if the tempo is really slow.
This exercise pairs two different grooves (a basic jazz groove and a half time rock groove) to be practiced along with various 16th note fills. The syncopated nature of these fills along with the speed of each figure when compared with the sparse groove, may be a bit tricky to pull off. But keep at it. These really sound great!
Please Note that the Grooves at the top of the page are labelled "Beat one' and "Beat two". I realize this can be confused with the count and should've been labelled "Groove one" and "Groove two". please take note. Thank you.
