This is a double-kick/fill/groove/lick that I first heard Dave McClain from Machine Head play. I’ve heard Danny Carey and Steve Smith play variations of this as well. I used Ted Reed’s Syncopation as part of the demonstration. This video will walk you through the steps necessary to perform it. Check it out!
