Difficulty LevelIn this free drum lesson, I want to teach you the main drum beat to the song “Bonnie The Cat” by Porcupine Tree with Gavin Harrison on drums.

This is one of my favourite Gavin Harrison drum beats from Porcupine Tree. It features a ton of ghost notes, offbeat snare drum back beats and Gavin’s clever use of rhythmic illusions to disguise where the downbeat falls. It has it all!

I highly recommend that you spend time playing this slowly until it turns into muscle memory and is learnt off by heart. This will allow you to go further into the song to also have a go at some of those amazing double bass drum drum fills!
