Terry Bozzio Master Class: Rhythm 2
In Rhythm 2, Terry teaches basic permutations of triplets and 16th notes and how to use them in an ostinato with your feet. There's no better way to learn then from the master himself.
Beginner to Intermediate, 7 drum lessons, 2 hours 6 minutes.
Hearing Terry play these basic ostinato patterns on a pad, then a 5-piece kit, then a monster kit, brings home the message that it’s not the size of the drumset you play that makes you a musical drummer, it’s the approach you take to whatever size drumset you have. Terry begins these patterns slowly and then builds speed, just as you will have to do. When you finish Rhythm 2, you will have a clear idea of the concept of ostinatos and there’s no better way to learn than from the master himself. Watch the preview and see full list of lessons below.
Terry has a Members Only Forum where he welcomes any questions or comments you might have. And remember, you can post a video in Free Videos - Community. If you’re struggling through some of the exercises, don’t worry. As you’ll see in these lessons, Terry has a few times where he is struggling himself.
