Groove and Fill Ideas Using Single Strokes
In this lesson series, Berklee Percussion Instructor Sergio Bellotti will use Single Strokes – one of the most basic drumming skills – to create a variety of grooves and fills across various musical genres. Sergio demonstrates that by being able to focus on one of the body’s most natural rhythmic devices, you can focus on the most important aspects of drumming – playing a great groove in a musical setting!
