Difficulty LevelIn this video I will be showing you a really simple three note pattern played between the hands. The sticking is simply R L L but its uses are endless.

I will demonstrate for you the many and exciting ways it can be used within drum fills and drum beats. I hope to demonstrate to you just how much can be gained from such a simple pattern. The written notation for each orchestration will be appearing at the bottom of the screen as I play the examples.

This lick is very similar to the “Bonham Bass Drum Triplets” which are explained in another Drums The Word video drum lesson elsewhere. You can view this video lesson here.
