The Roots - Boom - Drum Cover / Solo by Aaron Edgar

Easy Drumming That Sounds Hard

The Roots are an American hip-hop band that formed in 1987. The song Aaron Edgar covers in this video is called “Boom!” and is taken from The Roots’ 2004 release The Tipping Point. Before pressing play get your favorite drink, sit back and relax while you watch Aaron Edgar groove and play a little drum solo at the end of the tune.

Aaron Edgar is especially known for his vast knowledge on rhythmic illusions like metric modulation, beat displacement and polyrhythms. This drum cover comes to show how versatile Aaron Edgar can actually be and how his knowledge goes way beyond weird and crazy rhythmic concepts. If you’re curious about learning how some of these concepts work, we advise you to check the free drum lessons “Metric Modulation Simplified” and “What Is A Polyrhythm.”
