For anyone who is new to the drums or is an aspiring professional drummer, this video will show you a simple beat that could help you build rhythm--the swing beat. Jonathan, the drum tutor in this video, demonstrates how to perform the easy swing beat using the cymbal, bass drum and snare. First, Jonathan shows you the how to hit the cymbal three times--only not in a consecutive manner. You have to hit the cymbal once and then two more times closer together. Then Jonathan demonstrates how to alternate by hitting the bass drum and the snare. Blending all of these hits together will create a nice rhythmic base. By following the steps demonstrated in the video by Jonathan, you will have a good starting point toward becoming an expert drummer.
