Drum Lessons: An entry level drum beat using a double bass drum pedal. This exercise demonstrates a backbeat on the snare on beat 3 while keeping time with right hand. The double bass drum element plays 16th notes all the way through a bar. By playing this exercise slowly, you will notice that with every strike I play with my time keeping hand, 2 bass drum beats are played.
Speeding up the exercise is a good way to improve endurance and stamina on the drum kit.
