We already know Nasty Lick #91, and if you don’t, feel free to have a look at the orignal post HERE. This new twist on the idea is simply a matter of math. Instead of sixteenth note triplets, as in the original, we use 32nd notes. It’s a handy notion that most of the great drummers use: change the metrics on any lick or pattern you like/know and you’ll come up with something new. The new one might sound good, and it might not–it’s up to you to decide.
Happily, this one sound great! I wouldn’t be writing this if it didn’t. And, as usual, there is a video and an accompanying PDF. The video shows me playing Nasty Lick #91a in a bunch of different ways, and the PDF gives you a note-for-note transcription of everything I play. Simple enough, right?
OK, have at it. Print out the PDF here: Nasty Drum Lick 91A. Check out the video below. Let me know what you think.
