Drumming Patterns

the components of rhythm & drum technique

Drumming Patterns are the fundamental patterns that underlie both rhythm and drum technique. When these patterns are arranged in a progression from shortest longest, they illustrate all of the essential rhythmic and technical patterns available for all styles of drumming, in order of usefulness. When these patterns are systematically applied to all aspects of rhythm and drum technique, the result is the drummer's equivalent to the system of musical harmony that is used by other instrumentalists.
