  4. Learn How to Play a Trap Beat

    Hey everyone! This week on my weekly series, "Groove of the Week"...I did a lesson on Trap Beats. For those unfamiliar with Trap Music, it is a form of hip hop that originated in the 90's, and has since made a real comeback as of the last few years. The music has an electronic dance element to it. Heavy bass, 808 drum sounds, and lots of wobbly leads. A dead giveaway is the hi hat pattern. Very 16th -32nd note based, often times followed by some triplets. I hope you enjoy this groove even if the style of music isnt your cup of tea. I'm not a huge fan, but trying to recreate these drum machine bangers is quite fun!
  5. Teach Your 6 Stroke Roll New Tricks

    Hey Mike and Mike! Thanks for checking out the video!! I know everyone always says.."Practice it Slow"...But it's the truth with this one. It took me a while to get it smooth. I really found that locking on to the accents allowed it to flow more for me. the doubles should be very ghosted. You want your arms to kind of go in a wave motion. Like the kind of wave where you would see an audience at a baseball game. Your left goes up and the right follows in that wave like motion. Really exaggerate that motion even if it looks ridiculous. As one hand comes down for the accent, the other follows shortly after. I would also suggest using a metronome app that clicks off 16th note triplets. If you can accent certain clicks...even better. That will be a good guide to follow. Again do it slow and just focus on feeling what you hear.

    I'm so glad you stopped by to check it out! It might be a little confusing at first to read. I suggest learning it in chunks. Once you get the feel for it, it should begin to flow a little easier. Thanks again for watching! I'll continue to post them since there is an interest!

  12. Fellow Drummers...What is up!!!

    Hey everyone! My name is Chris Langan, and I'm a Professional Drummer & Educator from Northeastern Pennsylvania! I've been searching for some good Drum forums online and I haven't really found anything that stuck out to me. That was until I found this site! I'm hoping there are some pretty active members in here to share their drumming knowledge, experiences, stories, tips, etc! I have been playing for 32 years, and professionally for just over 20. I've been teaching now going on 11 years. The last 3 years I decided to really make it a full time thing, and get rid of the stupid day job that I hated! So I'm just thrilled that I have been able to earn a living doing something I love! I share alot of Lessons, Drum Covers, Gear Reviews, How To's, Song Breakdowns, and Vlog Type content on my Youtube Page! I invite you all to check it out as I think this is the best way for you all to get to know me! I see that there is a dedicated section just for Drum Lessons, so I will make sure to upload new videos to that as often as possible. It's a full time job in itself keeping up with Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube as it is! Lol Anyway...Here is my Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/behindthebeatwithchrislangan If you would like to visit me on Instagram, my handle is @Chris_Langan_Drummer Look Forward to chatting with you all!
