This is the sixth in a series of videos designed to get you started playing with a band or playing along with music.
There are 7 building blocks which, when combined, will allow you to play thousands of songs.
I will introduce one of these 7 building blocks in each video (Beats A through G).
Beat A: http://youtu.be/t0Jj0YsKl9Q
Beat B: http://youtu.be/SSDE3zyLurw
Beat C: http://youtu.be/UjScPlaDVbI
Beat D: http://youtu.be/n1cpPec20dI
Beat E: http://youtu.be/SCl2smR47a8
Beat F: http://youtu.be/2weilQI1tKg
Beat G: http://youtu.be/fecJUHoEg_4
These videos will all follow the same format:
The beat is played from slow to moderately fast in 20BPM (beats per minute) increments. First 20BPM then 40, 60, 80, 100 and finally 120BPM. At the end of each video I will play a short improvisation on the theme of the beat so you can hear possible applications.
You can find more educational resources including examples of popular songs that utilize these beats, accompanying .PDF sheet music and play-along tracks on my website: http://www.nkmdrums.com/beats
I hope you find these videos helpful. Thanks for watching!
