Default A little groove to ponder

Been playing with this for a few days. A fish stick for anyone that can explain what I'm doing.

Hope you enjoy: http://youtu.be/vXYbqxLFGvs

I like it too, but I'm going to have to miss out on the fish stick :(

Nice. Some kind of half-time thing going on. Maybe six ride hits for every beat? It's v fast to hear them tho, so I'm guessing here

Love the groove!

I here 5 beats every bar and there's a different rhythm on top of it.

You're about there!

Basically:imagine a hand-to-hand 16th note rock groove between the hi-hat and the snare.You know, hands playing a 16th single stroke roll, bass drum on 1 and 3, right hand coming down to the snare on 2 and 4.

First thing I did was to play quintuplets instead of 16ths, so I'm playing 5 16ths between every beat. This still allows the left hand to play the down beat on the snare.

Second, I moved my right hand to the ride. This is now playing a quintuplet over 2 beats.

Finally, I alternate that right hand between the bell and the body of the ride, giving a quintuplet over the whole bar, all the while keeping the bass drum on 1 and 3, the snare on 2 and 4. Sounds busy and odd, but keeps the basic rock feel going so that you can relate to it.

This is why I love drumming! Thanks for all the feedback. I'll do a proper video on this soon.

Thanks for explaining. I can also hear you're incorporating different kick patterns and
this is where it gets tricky for me. Normally I would follow the flow of the 5-note 16's with
the foot but how would you feel or notate a normal eight note bass drum pattern
against it?

Chaffee-licious! :)

Okay, now accent every 3rd ride cymbal note. Then, every 4th. Then every 7th, 8th, and 9th. Then eat sushi in between backbeats with the left. :P
