    nice displacement.

    Many thanks for the video. At my drumming-level, starting a fill on the “a” of 4 looks to be tricky, but I’ll certainly give it a try – and if I can play it properly, I have no doubt that the displacement of the snare-accents will cause a “What’s *that*?” reaction from my bandmates.

    Very Cool. Simplicity in it’s finest. I’ve been playing drums for a great many years, and am always interested in different styles and methods. Thanks for the continued free lessons. :)

    Very cool Stephen! Love the 32nd note kick before the 16th’s. I was experimenting with this at slower tempos and morphed the 32nd kicks into a partial triplet. Basically, Tri-pa-let without playing the beginning note. I also tried inverting the double toms with the flams on the snare and moving the snare part to the Tims. Nice Work! You gave us a lot to think about. Thank you for you incredible teaching ability!

    This is awesome. What cymbals are you using in this video? I love the sound of the crash you’re playing the groove on.

      I believe that’s my 22″ Bounce ride. It has that sound as well as the one sitting next to it, the 22″ Renaissance. Both have a cluster hammer pattern that give it that wash.
