What a belter of a drum groove requested by Amber recently! I love this pattern and its suitable for all ability levels. I recommend playing this open handed. This means on beat 4 of the first bar your right hand moves from floor tom to snare whilst your left moves from snare to open HH.

The hi-tom hots on the '&' of 3 and 4 of the second bar could be replaced for medium toms depending on the tuning of your kit. Go with whatever sounds good to you.

Don't forget to use the groovescribe link below and play-along to the drum machine at a slower tempo first before trying it along to the track.


And when you're ready have a go at playing it along to the track.
