Many times the best musical practice on the drums is to give your fellow musicians lots of space. A steady beat and some poignant dramatic flare are often enough for the rest of your guys succeed. In performing music every performer wins and fails as a group, so supporting your friends is a good practice. In the video below I play a steady four on the floor beat, that is to say quarter notes on the bass drum. In the chorus I pick it up a notch with a classic rock beat. Aspects of the drumming in the chorus remind me of CCR & Suzie Q with the upbeats on the bass drum, it serves as an alternative to the four on the floor downbeats. Towards the Coda, or end, I play a clave rhythm on the bass drum when Zafer begins his bass fill. During this phrase, I also throw some 16th note based paradiddles on my high hat and snare drum. At the Coda, I play mostly power rock style quater notes while Troy on Guitar and Zafer on Bass play a syncopated beat over my straight beat, adding tension, pulse and power.
