Rock Drum Lesson 1
Beginner Drum Beats

This drum lesson introduces the basic rock beat and simple variations for beginner drummers. These rock beats are the foundation of all modern rock and pop drumming. You may find it difficult to coordinate your limbs at first but this will become easier with practice. Make sure that unison notes are played exactly together. You should play the bass drum, snare drum and hi-hat voices at the same volume, and the volume should be even across all the notes. Practice with a metronome or play along to some music to make sure your time is steady.
