www.totalcontroldrumtuition.com An entry level drum beat using a double bass drum pedal. This exercise shows me playing a heavy backbeat on the snare on beat 3 and keeping time with my 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….
