Linear Drum Fill Improvisation

Easy Drumming That Sounds Hard

Here at DrumLessons.com we have a huge collection of free drum lessons on linear drumming. The content from those free drum lessons is mostly written down in the form of various linear-pattern combinations. This is a very effective method for teaching linear drumming but lacks in improving your improvisational and musical skills within this drumming topic. In this free drum lessons, Jared Falk addresses those shortcomings by teaching a method for improving your improvisational skills and freeing up your body and mind when playing linear patterns.

The idea behind this free drum lesson is getting you to play linear patterns as freely and effortlessly as gospel drummers like Aaron Spears, Gerald Heyward and George “Spanky” McCurdy, just to name a couple. Gospel drummers are some of the most articulate, groovy, and creative drummers at playing this type of patterns, especially as drum fills. Being able to pull off almost anything you can think of is the pinnacle of any musical instrument, which makes this an invaluable lesson.

Practicing this concept along to music is a great, fun idea. You get to improve on your ability to improvise linear drum fills while gaining a ton of experience at playing them in a musical setting. We encourage you to play along the jam track we created specifically for mastering drum fills that’s featured on DrumLessons.com–you’ll have a blast!

If you’d rather learn a couple more linear patterns before trying out this concept, there are a lot of free drum lessons to chose from. If you’d like to apply linear drumming to drum beats, check Dave Atkinson’s “Beginner Linear Drum Beats” to get started. Drum fills is where linear drumming is heavily applied to. The free drum lesson “Hand To Feet Combination Fills” is a good place to start with, since its patterns cater to single or double bass-drum pedal players, from beginner all the way to advanced.

    Dear Judy,I am so sorry to hear the news of Peter’s departure. I have thghout about him since he wrote of his illness in the newsletter. Please accept my condolences.Although Yana and I did not know you well it was a pleasure to have spent even a little time over the one dinner we had together. We were pleased to number you both as friends in the awakening of earth consciousness. Your work together will remain as an important beacon in the shift from the ecological darkness that threatens but that, thanks to Peter and your light, has become measurably less oppressive. Thanks are due for such a determined spirit. Peter’s dedication brought new hope to many, I know. I send my best wishes and prayers for you, and family, and for Peter’s safe journey.Please let me add Yana’s condolences to my own for Peter. We both had such admiration for him.Christopher
