A must for all of us! After all, we only really have rhythm and dynamics available to us on the drumset (Unless we’re Terry Bozzio). I put together a quick tutorial on playing ghost notes versus accents effectively!
To stay true to my usual content, the example is in quintuplets… Don’t worry, it’s super slow, I just used the quintuplets to force leading with both hands as it switches every quarter note.
The practice pad is an HQ on top of a 14×6 Sonor Delte. Vater Virgil’s Assault drumsticks.
The drumset is a Sonor SQ2 Beech Vintage with three SQ2 snares (Birch Thin and XRay).
All the cymbals are Hammerax.
I exclusively play Sonor drums, Hammerax cymbals and hybrids, Vater drumsticks, Evans drumheads, Puresound snare wires, Kelly SHU, Power Wrist Builders, Protection Racket and BillDidIt Drop Clutches.
