In this free video drum lesson,¬† I want to treat you all to some amazing drumming from Danny Carey of Tool. The song I’ve chosen is one of my favourites – “Aenema

The first two drum beats are a tom based groove in 12/8. The second drum beat is the same as the first, but incorporates a stepped hi-hat creating a really cool polyrhythmic effect.

The third four bar sequence shows how the opening of the hi-hat can create even more polyrhythmic possibilities.

And the fourth groove show how simple it is create a very cool double bass drum groove.
