Introduction to the video drum lesson: Basic Rock 1

The drum sheet of this lesson about coordination in Rock drumming contains a series of basic exercises on the drum set.

This series of lessons deals with various combinations of strokes on the classic rock pattern, a 4/4 measure with steady quadruplets played by the right hand on the ride cymbal, and second and fourth fourths played by the hi-hat.
