There are many different ways to realize odd timings as a drummer.
Polyrhythms, displacement, metric modulation, subdivisions… these are all different ways of talking about the same thing – oddly timed patterns.
The truth is, you don’t need to go too far down the rabbit hole with these concepts to be able to apply them musically. You just need a simple system to apply them to your compositions and crucially – for your ideas to groove.
In this short lesson, I’ll talk about my approach to these concepts, and how I use them.
Developing your understanding of oddly-timed patterns and concepts is something that is crucial for any good progressive drummer. It’s something that I love to help my students with and I cover extensively in my Progressive Drumming Masterclass.
I present a number of lessons that deal with various polyrhythms and complex ostinatos – all with the end result being for my students to be able to use them musically within their own playing.
I’d love to speak to you in more detail about this if you’re ready to pour jet fuel on your drumming abilities.
