    There are variations of this. Anything remotely similar to the ole "ba dum bum" riff will work. Everyone has there own take on it. Many hit just quick 1,2 on the snare and then crash the cymbal or splash with the bass drum.

    Yup, during a rehearsal I played some sort of variation of it.
    One of my mates told me it wasn't correct and that there was a "universal one".
    Had a big discussion on the subject, stupid I know.

    Tnx Drummer,

    I'll just rub your post in his face. .

    yeah, I play it like

    C|------------X---|
    S|----o-----------|
    B|o---------------|

    I think that's different from the standard way but I like it better this way.

    It's common practice to Entropy that playing this backwards makes everything sad instead, and playing something other than the crash at the end signifies confusion.

    To me, the funniest licks are anything that sounds like falling down stairs, played as sloppily as possible.

    No, I still won't play Wipe Out.

    Cool comedy riff

    The sound that works is basically "bar-rump-bump!"

    When I've done it on a set, it's basically a ruff on either the snare or a side tom with a rimshot on a floor tom or a shot on the crash cymbal (quickly muffled).

    On congas, the ruff goes on the quinto or conga (if playing three), and a dull "thump" on the tumba; if you're playin' two, the ruff goes on the smaller of the pair, and the thump on the larger.

    On "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," the percussionist simply goes "thump...BOOMP" on two of her three congas...the "thump" on her conga and the "BOOMP" on the tumba...

    keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!
