Welcome back!! Drummers, have you developed any patterns that involve cross rhythms enabling/containing a “secondary backbeat?” In this installment, I break down the challenging groove for verse 2 of my original song entitled, “I See Your 5 and Raise You 3….or 4.” Friends, if you would be so kind to help ‘Share’ this video to drummer friends, groups or others, I would greatly appreciate it. SHARE SHARE SHARE AWAY!!
