How to read this drum music



  • This drum pattern is based on a Latin style drum beat

  • Notice your hands alternate between the low and high tom toms until the snare drum at the end

  • The bass drum and hi hat pedal play a straight beat. Place the tom toms on or around this beat

  • Play just the bass drum, hi hat pedal and floor tom to begin with. That rhythm can be counted: 1, 2 & 3, 4.
