“Physical Education” Drum Beat Lesson (Animals As Leaders & Matt Garstka)

Matt Garstka

In this free drum lesson, I want to show you how to play the main drum beat from the song "Physical Education" by Animals As Leaders, drummed by the incredible Matt Garstka.

I'm sure, just like you, you've been blown away by Matt's playing with the band since he joined the band a couple of years back. After getting their latest album, I was particularly blown away by the seeming simplicity and GROOVE of the track Physical Education.

The drum groove consists of a two bar drum beat in 4/4…I know, right?! The thing that makes it sound quirky, is the way the bass drum dances around the beats of the bar, creating the illusion of an odd time signature.

Clever, eh?
