Как играть на барабанах (все эпизоды):
Text tutorial for English speakers
1. First trick is nothing but fingers play. Sometimes you need to play something in a quiet manner, and in these cases backbeat is played using rim-click. And when using rim-click you are not always able to play fills in form of ghost notes on snare. For example, we play half-time shuffle. As you see, there is sufficient number of ghost notes in form of fills. So how do we play this beat going piano or even pianissimo? Sure, we may do rim-clicks, but this will not deliver us required effect. This is where ghost notes are required. And this is where the fingers will do the trick -- technique usually adopted by percussionists. I.e., all silent notes shall be played with fingers. You have following options -- for example, play them with one finger. Index finger. Middle finger. Ring finger. Pinky. Or you may play it with all fingers making your sound denser. Apart from 8th you may play 16th triplets as well. To make it more comfortable you may play them with 2 fingers. Also, you may play more notes. And you may mix this all and play various fills. Do the same with quadruplet patterns.
Where to use this? In any song requiring quiet playing where such fills are possible.
Who can teach this? Bernard Purdie and his school "Groove Master" - it is old, but still useful; Zoro and his master-class at "Modern Drummer'2005".
So, with your fingers you may play silent notes on the snare even quieter.
2. Second trick - imitation of 2 bass drums. If you, just like me, don't use second pedal and sometimes wish or need to play something resembling 2 bass drums -- here's the way out: play all odd eighths on floor tom, and the evens -- on bass drum. Leading foot pattern shall be played with left foot. Actually, we play 16th notes beginning with left foot. I.e., left foot will be leading in this case. At that, everything played with the left foot shall be dubbed on floor tom. Then you add the snare. You may keep the lead line with left hand. You may play triplets likes these. You may play 32nds as well. Also you may play melodic patterns. For example, let's take a look at "Domination" by Pantera. Where to use it? Anywhere where that double bass thing is required. Also you may use it as fills, break-ins and breaks. Who can teach you this? Mike Johnston. Far as I know, he had released entire book on this. Also you may just copy double bass patterns playing in this manner, i.e. -- using tom and bass drum.
3. Let's go back to silent playing. Very often, when your hands are busy, you need that opening hi-hat sound. Let's say you play bossa nova. Opening your hat. Now with the brush, where your right hand is busy imitating shaker sound. And in this case, for accents or melodics, you need this hissss. You may do it with your left foot. This method goes like this: almost like heel-toe, but with greater stress on hill hit. You use your heel to hit the pedal heel; at that your foot shall be in perpendicular to the shank. And then you press hat pedal with your toe to close it. Yet another idea consists in transferring some part of the melody pattern on your left foot, i.e., playing it with hi-hat as well. Now let's play some notes on the hi-hat with left foot. Don't forget about the trick with opening the hat using your left foot. Now let's add another trick that you have learned today, i.e., playing grace notes on the snare with your fingers. Where to use it? In ballads, in Latin music, swing, jazz, i.e. -- anywhere where this can be heard, that is any style with moderate and quiet dynamics.
4. As the bonus today we are looking at the pattern from "Sexy M.F." by Prince, played and recorded by Michael Bland.
