Sticking Patterns for 8th Note Fills


In this lesson we will use our "5 Pathways of Motion" to create 8th note fills using Single Strokes, Double Strokes, and Paradiddles. Although a simple concept, I believe it's really important that we begin learning ways to improvise fills from the very outset of our playing, and these pathways and sticking patterns are a great way to start.

For more lessons on the technique required to play these sticking patterns, and for access to all of the backings tracks used in this lesson, check out the Unlock Your Drumming: Hand Technique for Beginner Drummers course.
