Default Drum Fills

Hey People :) Just wondering about different drum fills, ok theres 100000000's of them because anything can be thought of but how do people do this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB2BvUmHGdg


These fills seem so simple with it being the toms and double bass but how to people get it THAT Good, also what fills do you guys use, do you base it around one simple fill or each time off the top of your head ??

Well, it's a pretty simple fill still at a relatively human tempo, it's not really all that difficult, the fact that it's simple and presents no conceoptual and rhythmical challenge make it very easy to just focus on the execution. You just start playing it at a tempo in which you can execute it *perfectly* and from there, you keep going up, mastering it at different stages, until it's at where you want it.

I don't think this is probably the right section to discuss fills, but, that being said, I don't play double bass (have played for 17 years, though) but would like to start. For that fill, is he just swapping triplets (or splitting sextuplets rather) between the kick and toms?

Seems like a typical Mike Portnoy style fill. To get fills sounding like that, you play sextuplets, groups of 6 notes, and split them 4 on the snare or toms, then 2 on the feet. So you play RLRLKKRLRLKKRLRLKKRLRLKK whilst moving the RLRL around the kit.
