This time we’re going to look at another great Steve Gadd idea. It’s one of his staples; you’ll hear it frequently in his solos. This online drum lesson will include video and a PDF with the lick written out note-for-note.

Please don’t be afraid to repeat a great sounding phrase! It’s a musical way to play and the listener may enjoy the repetition.
OK now on with the lesson…
