A while back I posted a sheet of eighth note rock beats. The original sheet, simply called “Eighth Note Rock Beats,” was just a baker’s dozen of beats….many of which I still use to this day in my rock playing. It doesn’t have to be complex to be good! Eighth note rock beats are the backbone of rock drumming and pop drumming. Just listen to AC/DC’s “Back In Black,” and you’ll know what I’m talking about. That original sheet can be downloaded by clicking on the following link: Eighth Note Rock Beats
For more fun with eighth note rock, here’s yet another dozen beats to work on to further your independence and deepen your vocabulary. To download “Part Two,” the “Son of Eighth Note Rock Beats,” just click on the link to the right and the pdf will be yours for the taking: Son of Eighth Note Rock Beats
Make sure to plan your escape route from your drum room so you don’t get eaten by zombies during your practice session.
