I don’t want to be super crazy into like “needing so much tom work for satisfaction” but I need help in working on making the sticking patterns for it fit in my music, but in my way..  does anyone know of any techniques to build the creativity and knowledge of creating a good tom fill? 

if wondering, I play Heavy Metal lol

When I started off playing, I’d play all sixteenth notes & work my way from high to low.  Once I got that good, I’d try bouncing back & forth between two toms, or the snare & one tom.  Eventually, instead of straight sixteenth notes, I’d skip some (play an 1/8 or a rest).

The more you play, the easier the flow & more creative you become.  Maybe someone else could recommend a good book.

same way you learn anything else on the drums. learn your rudiments. this is the only advice anyone can, and should give you.

learn-your-rudiments. what else is there, really, on the drums?

As stated above practice,practice’practice and get those rudiments down. Also listen to your favorite drummers and try what they are doing- SLOWLY at first…watch instructional DVD’s like those byNeil Peart to learn cool stuff like double-handed crossovers ,etc. but again- go slow until it feels comfortable. Everything comes with practice and familiarity… Good Luck!!
