Default The World's Most Important 7 seconds of drums

It's a rare thing for a publication such as the Economist to carry a piece about drumming. But its December issue has a piece on the so-called Amen Break:

Although outside of my genre interest, I did find the story fascinating. After all, whatever the context, it is a great break.

That was an amazing historical experience for such a small (but great) drum pattern, I found it quite interesting, especialy that I'm a fan of this type of patterns (the original, not the drum machine type) and I use them in a variety of styles, and the funny thing about it is that I had no idea that the "Amen break" existed in the first place.

Thanks TMS for posting it. :-))

I've played along on the pad with the Futurama theme countless times and never connected it with the Amen Break. Interesting article.
