Most weeks, I bring you either licks I lift from other drummers, or concepts I’m messing with.
Every once-in-a-while, though, I’ll catch myself playing something repetitively.
If it sucks, I try to “unlearn” it, or choose other ideas.
If it doesn’t - if I’m like “whoa, did I come up with that?”, I share it with you guys.
This one was a bit of a challenge.
I knew what I was playing, but I decided to go “before” and “after” the licks.
In the “before”, I try to show you what I might have been messing with to come up with the lick.
In the “after”, I take it, and apply it to a different rhythmic context.
Hence, two “sextuplet” licks that work both as (1) proper sextuplets, and (2) subdivided triplets, which subdivide the measure differently, but occur at equivalent rate to that of sextuplets.
So it turned my head around a bit. What I’m trying to say is…I’m sacrificing for you guys;)
Anyway, enjoy the lesson, and don’t forget to grab the transcription, and your 3 free videos, here.
