BASIC BEGINNING THE DRUMS - NO KIT NEEDED

 

Here are a series of lessons to get you started. No sticks or kit needed. Here we learn the basic organisation and co-ordination of the most commonly used beats/grooves. Once you have mastered these you can build on them and turn yourself into a drummer. Drums are the easiest instrument to learn and gain competence on but perhaps the hardest to achieve greatness on. Have fun...
