A "lick" of gratitude

I wanted to thank you guys for being so welcoming and kind to me during my first month of membership on the forum so I threw together a little video of a lick I like to use for you to add to your bag of tricks

nothing fancy just a little 2 bar thing that works real well for me in funky situations

there are 2 parts , they work well separately as well but I figured I would throw them together

each one broken down with sticking, then the lick applied (sort of... excuse my sloppiness :)...just a little hung over )

also ignore the terrible edits and the bad sound... recorded with my iPhone

try it out, and voice it wherever feels comfortable to you on the kit, its a blast

That's a stunning groove and lick you've got going there, mister G. A real reggae feel poking through into something that sounds all cut up, DnB style. Really good stuff

Wow that was tight. I would steal it if I could play it. Nice little drum cave you got there too. Appreciate this kind of stuff and hope you can put up with my beginner remarks.

Great lick and very well played! Super funky, man!

It's great to throw that double kick around, like even between both halves of the paradiddle (RLRRKKLRLLKK--makes for a tasty triplet lick, too...), or even "sprinkled" 4 times throughout (RLKKRRKKLRKKLLKK).

Funky funky funky!

Me too.

But let's just say I'm not happy with Kyle Williams right now. LOL.

who would have though we would see the day when a Ted Ginn injury could possibly be the difference in an NFC championship game

G-bro,

that is a very cool lick! I can see me stealing small sections of it to use in my crap, but not the full length version. Great control, you're obviously a classy player :)

I'd also like to acknowledge your enriching contribution to the forum. Good to have you here :):):)

Andy.

G-alphabet, I enjoy your posts and you're a terrific player, but I can't use this lick. Not even my ball park.

@ Polly - you can totally do it, break it into sections and give it a try :)

hahahaha G-alphabet...read it as "give the drummer some"
