Drums 103: Advanced Licks, Tricks, and Grooves- Clip 7 Hi-Hat Patterns


The video demonstration above features Kennieth “BAM” Alexander and shows more advanced drumming techniques. You’ll specifically see how to alternate between different Hi-Hat patterns real time.

Soak in what “BAM” is demonstrating and watch how you he integrates the patterns in different ways. This allows him to create so many different grooves. Also, make sure you listen to how tight he is playing in the pocket with the bass player (this is very important if you want to develop a solid and cohesive groove).

If you keep practicing and effectively apply the techniques in the video…you’ll also be able to play some amazing beats.

As you watch the video, make sure you check out the foot positioning on the bass drum pedal too. This needs to be done correctly for the best results. You should have a strong consistent hit each time, and if you don’t, just keep practicing until you get that…then practice some more : )

Watch, learn, and practice to get your technique solid… then when you’re ready, you can increase your speed to play like “BAM”.
