  3. >Beatkitchen Tutorials site

    >I have decided to create a seperate site for my tutorials… don’t worry, I will still be posting all videocasts here as usual… but for those of you who would actually like to study the method I am introducing here, I thought it would be more practical to have a dedicated site where all of the lessons are easily accessible…

  7. >Beatkitchen – Videocast: 04 Double Strokes

    October 6, 2006 by eshan_admin

    >
    Took a little longer than I expected but here it is… the next beatkitchen videocast… this time we are going to take a look at “Double Strokes”…

    … in total there are four variations of the double – as follows (‘R’ being Right Hand and ‘L’ being Left Hand):
    RRLL RRLL
    LLRR LLRR
    RLLR RLLR
    LRRL LRRL
    …pretty simple stuff… but, as with Single Strokes, they are not to be underestimated… these are the building blocks with which you will hopefully drum your way to success… and the better you master them, the more likely it is that you will be able to play all the tricky stuff well… as always make sure to practice these exercises with the click pattern introduced in the last podcast… have fun!

    PS: By the way, the amazing sunglasses featured in this podcast where donated by the fabulous Gwen Gwen Gwen….
