Learn How To Play One Handed 16th Note Drum Beats!

In this lesson we are goinf to be playing some one handed 16th note beats. These beats are more difflicult because you are going to be playing a lot of notes on the hi-hat in a short period of time. To be able to play these beats you will need to be able to play notes in quick succession with your hi-hat hand. This can be difficult at first and will take some time getting used to, but once you have the sequence and rhythm, these beats will sound amazing.

Example 1 plays sixteenth notes on the hi-hats and uses bass and snare hits on the first note of each beat. The other examples add in just a little more complexity to the beats played over top of the sixteenth note hi-hats, but all of them should be fairly easy to get with a little practice.
