Welcome to this lesson from the team at DIME ONLINE!
The lesson is designed to help you improve your playing and also give you an idea of what you can expect from the courses at DIME ONLINE.
Hi everyone – I’m Paul Elliott, and it’s my pleasure to be able to bring you a new lesson that covers an approach to linear playing that I find interesting, challenging and fun.
In this session, we will look at a linear exercise to develop the concept of playing in-between the bass drum and snare drum notes. This is similar to what was covered in lesson 1, except that now we will approach the resulting patterns with a swing feel. The focus for this is more groove-based than fills or phrases. It’s my hope that this simple exercise will provide you with new and interesting patterns as you get experimenting with different sounds.
