I love these types of time-playing ideas.
The first time I heard this kind of playing was when I was introduced to the drumming of Steve Gadd. His famous hi-hat/snare/bass drum ideas were always exciting and propelled the music forward.
There are other posts with these types of licks offered elsewhere in the blog. You can check out some links at the bottom of this post.
Here is the new one I’ve got for you. Check out the video below and download the PDF with the lick here: Nasty Lick 134
