Difficulty Level

In this free video drum lesson, I want to teach you the main drum beat from the song “1979” by Smashing Pumpkins featuring Jimmy Chamberlin on drums.

The song features a relatively simple two bar drum beat which I show you how to play. The second part of the lesson shows you how to play the more advanced version that you hear on the recording itself.
