Hey folks, what’s happening? I’ve got some more stuff that might interest you. I know it grabbed my attention for at least five seconds (just kidding). These examples are basically beats that are used as fills. Ex. 1 is self explanatory. I don’t know. I have fun playing it. Ex. 2 shows how to use Ex. 1 in a half-time situation. Ex. 3 and 4 show a thing using groupings of five – again Ex. 3 is in common time and Ex. 4 is in half-time.
Like I’ve said in the past, take these examples as a starting point and create your own licks from them. Take care, keep burning and I’ll talk to you later.
