Play this beat with a full force.

Its two main features are

  • The Bass Drum pattern. This is worth practising with a simple snare and high-hat pattern first.
  • The snare drum fill at the end of the bar, played right and then left, with the right hand coming back over on to the high-hat for the new bar (don't forget to use your a bit of foot on the high-hat here as well.)
This is a very heavy beat, assisted on the sample by some drum-machine 'hand-claps' - don't let that put you off though, it still sounds great without them!
