Here is a great sounding lick that has many possibilities for you to create new ideas. I’ve already been messing with it starting from the PDF I’m offering to you; check it out here: Nasty Drum Lick #131
I’m definitely NOT giving you my new variations, but ONLY because I want you to make up some stuff of your own.
The great jazz trumpeter, Clark Terry, said: “Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate.” The heaviness of those three words is hard to overstate.
Steal a lick, learn it and then…the best part is to mess around with it and make up something new.
So, please, take all of the Nasty Drum Licks I post here, but promise me you’ll do something else cool with them, OK?
Make them your own.
That’s all for now. Stay safe and “Live Loud–Play Drums!”
