Bass drum variations – Exercise

Hi drummers!

As I’m currently teaching drums on King Island in Australia I made this cheat sheet for one of my students. (BASS DRUM VARIATIONS). So more than happy to share it.

It’s based on the same system as we used with the permutations system (MUSIC TOOLS).

We start with a basic drum groove without adding a bass drum. The second exercise adds a single bass drum, the third exercise a double and the fourth a triple bass drum groove. We finish up with a full bass drum line underneath the basic drum groove.

Nothing too complicated but might be a good warm-up today :)
