Drum Lessons Course - Intermediate Package (42 lessons, $29.70)

In this drum lesson we are playing a groove and focusing on hi hat accents. When drummers accent the hi hats they don't simply hit harder they use a different part of the drum stick, playing with the shoulder of the drum stick instead of the tip and using moeller technique creates a louder sound.

We are playing eighth notes, sixteenth notes with the leading hand and sixteenth notes hand to hand on the hi hats and playing even accents. Accenting some notes on the hi hats will make grooves much more colourful.
