Default Drum Lesson covering Drag beats (using quintuplets and septuplets to "swing")

Haven't seen much on this topic so I thought I'd make a video going over it.

I'm new to making lessons so would love some feedback!

Let me know what you think

Thanks
Alistair

Cool. I always thought of those types of grooves as an intentionally disjointed, behind the beat type of thing that one would just get the feel for eventually. Never occurred to me to actually subdivide by 5 or 7. Nice job on the lesson.

Good video. This isn't really my bag, but I wrote something similar awhile back-- a method for getting the cymbal rhythm and creating a basic beat, anyway.

you can also get the same results by doing that, but I find having an exact value to work with is much better at being able to see how accurate you are, rather than just guessing. Thanks for checking it out!

Just had a look, that's pretty cool man. It looks to be pretty much the same sort of ideas, wish I knew about that when I was younger haha!
