Here are some basic tutorials showing a drummer and a real acoustic drum kit. These videos will help you see which drums and cymbals we’re trying to model in our electronic drum grooves. They also reinforce some of the patterns we learned.
Watch at least some of these. Feel free to skip around. The first ones are very basic. The last two (funk and blues) end with more intricate patterns.
There are plenty more tutorials where these came from. Visit the Rock Music on the Drums YouTube page.
