Learn to play the drum beats of Funk music

Introduction to the beginner drum lesson: Funk drum beats

The sheet music of this beginner drum lesson shows some basic beats with Funk slow going and accents on the sixteenths.

Funky music spread across america in the '70's as an heritage from Rhythm'n'Blues; funky patterns, with their accented sixteenths, went on to influence Blues, Rock, Jazz and, in more recent times, Dance music and Hip Hop.
The Funk patterns in the drum sheet are made by a 4/4 measure. The score splits the staff in two parts: the upper one is dedicated to the hi-hat, the lower one to the combination of bass and snare drum strokes.
