Here’s my instructional video on how to play Chris Layton’s energetic groove on Stevie Ray’s Testify. It’s a brilliant groove to learn and to play and gives us a chance to focus on doing the dynamic strokes (Full, Down, Tap and Up strokes) on the snare. Here’s a PDF with a breakdown of the individual beats as explained in the video.
Here is my latest offering, it’s an explanation of the up stroke and down stroke for beginning drummers. I am still being too serious in my videos. But I’m working on it. Enjoy.
