Adding 32nd notes to your grooves! – July InstaJamm 1

Add some cool licks to your drum grooves with 32nd note doubles!

In this weeks Insta Jamm we tackle a topic that strikes fear in to the hearts of a lot of drummers early in their journey. The dreaded 32nd note double strokes!

32nd note doubles come from mastering a double stroke technique that is tricky to understand but once you have it, feels natural and fluid and will allow you to speed up some of your fills and add interest to your grooves like these hi-hat licks!

Lee takes us through the subdivisions so we can hear how these 32nd notes sound coming from 8ths to 16ths etc.

Adding these on the hi-hat to your grooves can enhance and embellish grooves in the pop, funk and RnB genres. So give them a try!
