Hi, I'm Brandon from Beat Doctor.com. I get asked all the time how to get started playing the drums, so today I'm going to show you a how to play a quick, easy beat that you can learn in minutes.
If you already know the basics such as the names of the drums and how to set up your kit, that's great. If not, you want to watch to the end for info on how to get step-by-step training on that.
So, the first thing that you need to know how to do is count to four... 1,2,3,4 at a nice slow, even tempo. lol, ok, we've got the hard part out of the way.
Next, take your right hand and move it over to the ride cymbal typically located to the right hand side of the drumset. Begin to play along with the counts. Nice and slow and even.
Now, when you're ready, play your right foot on the bass drum on beat 1. This should coincide with your right hand playing the ride cymbal. Repeat this a bunch of times until it's comfortable.
Lastly, you add your left hand on beat three on the snare drum. This is also played at the same time as the right hand on the ride cymbal. Make sure not to accidentally add in the bass drum on 3, or leave out the right hand.
All together, it sounds like this (demo). The best thing you can do to get this beat super solid is to repeat the exercise over and over again. Keep the tempo slow and even, and count out loud while you play, this will help to ingrain the muscle memory into your limbs. Try using a metronome if you can!
Great! you've just learned how to play your first drum beat! For more FREE tips and tools on how to be a better drummer, click here.
