Why The "Amen Brother" Drum Beat Is So Great

A six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969 that created a new musical genre. This
sample was used extensively in early hip hop and sample based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and
jungle music. It has since become to be known as the “Amen Break”.

A six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures? Not many drummers can claim to have done that!

How To Play It

The famous Amen Break occurs at 1:28. This four bar pattern involves Gregory playing eighth notes on the ride cymbal
throughout, apart from one crash cymbal on the '+' of beat 3 in bar 4.

Bar 1 and 2 are played exactly the same as each other with a snare drum backbeat played on beats 2 and 4 of the bar.
Two extra snare drum notes are played in between the ride cymbal on the 'a' and 'e' of beat 2 and 3 respectively.

Two sixteenth bass drum notes are played straight after the second of these snare drums, starting with the ride cymbal
on the '+' of beat 3. The bar ends with a quiet ghost note on the snare drum, in between the ride cymbal, on the 'a' of
beat 4.

Bar 3 is played exactly the same except that only one bass drum is played on the '+' of beat 3 and not on the 'a'. The
snare drum is also cleverly displaced back one eighth note to the '+' of beat 4, pushing the groove in an interesting

Bar 4 has an extra snare drum played on the 'e' of beat 1 followed by two bass drum notes, played in exactly the same
way as beat 3 for bars 1 and 2. As previously mentioned, the crash is played on the '+' of beat 3, after the two snare
drum notes that fall in between the ride cymbals. The bar ends with another displaced snare drum backbeat, moved to
the '+' of beat 4 as heard at the end of bar 3.

Little did Gregory know that what he played would be so influential but one thing is known; he was way ahead of his
time considering this was recorded way back in 1969!
