A little syncopation drum lesson …
Drumming is no easy task, we all know this simple fact. Drum beats can get repetitive after time and going thru the motions alone won’t make it in most cases. That’s why you need to know about syncopation.
The standard rock, punk and disco beats can be totally renewed with a little consciousness about syncopation, the key here is simple enough: put emphasis on the offbeat and not just the beat, this is the most simple, yet very effective, way, to make your drumming stand out a lot more!
This interesting syncopation drum lesson by Carminemw explain it clearly, with examples, based on the teachings of the fundamental drum book: Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummer by Ted Reed
