In the video above we have a groove that’s not necessarily traditional, but more New Orleans-inspired. New Orleans drummer Brian Blade lays down an amazing groove on “Where Will I Be” by Emmy Lou Harris, from the album Wrecking Ball. This interesting snare pattern is very settled, and the bass drum part provides a nice counterpart.
- Try experimenting with the snare pattern on other parts of the kit, like the snare hoop
- Keep the rimshots gentle for a nice laid-back feel
