If you are here, that means you want to start drumming and learn drumming basics. This is the first lesson I learned when I start taking drum lessons.
I moved away with drumming, it was my fifth year, but I skipped this drum exercise so I had to go back to fix things and learn drumming basics properly.
You will not find this lesson on Youtube at least I haven’t seen it.
I learned this exercise from our local drum teacher. It is the greatest drum lesson I ever learned so that is why I decided to share it with the drumming community.
Drumming is all about metric (distance between two notes) and dynamic. This lesson contains both.
It is a powerful tool but, you need to practice it painfully slow, like 50 bpm slow.
After you do it you will have a clear sense of how important are dynamic, metric and articulation in drumming.
Here is what you get from this drum exercise:
- Improve dynamic on drums
- Improve Metric (distance between strokes) on drums
- Learn down stroke
- Learn up stroke
- Learn tap stroke
- Learn full stroke
