Improving drum fills

DON’T MISS A BEAT – Sign up for my newsletter & I’ll send you some free drum lessons specific to your needs.

I know what it’s like to feel bored with my current drum fills. I’ve been there, and I’ve overcome it.

The truth is, you don’t need to know ALL of the rudiments to write good fills. You just need a handful of patterns that you know well and some creative ways to realize those patterns musically.

In this lesson, I’ll walk you through the exact process I follow to come up with an endless supply of cool new drum fills.

Developing the ability to compose and learn new fills ideas is something that is crucial for any good drummer. It’s something that I love to help my students with and I cover extensively in my Progressive Drumming Masterclass.

I present only the handful of patterns that I use for 99% of the fills. Rather than giving you a whole book of rudiments to learn, I’ll show you the exact ones that work for me, and how to use them musically.

I’d love to speak to you in more detail about this if you’re ready to pour jet fuel on your drumming abilities.
