Drum lesson tips, Ideas, Stories and Free lessons
Truth be told, this beat will work on almost every pop song for the last 4 decades! Try it.
Now after you've played along for awhile have a closer listen and you will hear variations of this beat within each video. Billy Jean has half as many bass drum hits. Think Boom Chuck Boom Chuck with the bass drum and snare drum. Another instance of variation is found in Seven Nation Army starts with just the bass drum and floor tom. Then it gets all crashy on the chorus.
I can help you sort it out. Call me.
