Welcome back. This is week seven of drum lessons in the music coach program. This week, we're going to start to work on alternating between quarter notes and eighth notes with your hands while you're keeping your feet going with quarter notes. This is a really important skill that sometimes gets overlooked, which is keeping your feet going consistently even while your hands are playing different rhythms and moving to different places on the drum kit. One of the most common things you'll see when people take drum solos is that their feet will either stop or their feet speed up and slow down depending on what's going on with their hands. And again, it's because your body is cross wired.

So the right side of your body is Richard your brain is controlling the left side of your body and vice versa. You're also going to find that certain things like your right hand and your right foot will always want to be doing the same thing at the same time. And the same with your left. So this starts to break up that pattern so that you're not always playing the same rhythm at the same time with your right foot and right hand and left foot and left hand. So in this week's practice video, you're going to get your feet going steadily. Start out by playing the same rhythm at the same time, which is right foot, foot, hands, and but then also being able to play eighth notes, just and also being able to go between the two rhythms.

Now, like I talked about last week, as you're switching gears between playing quarter notes and eighth notes and back, your sense of time, and how it's passing is going to be changing, especially as you go from a slower pattern to a faster pattern. Most people tend to speed up. And the opposite is true. As you go from playing eighth notes back to quarters, most drummers tend to slow down. This is why playing with a metronome or a backing track is so important. Because as you're playing your drum fills, which is where most drummers usually fall apart, you're going to feel what happens when you come out of your drum fill or out of your pattern, and feel where the time is.

And trust the metronome because your sense of what's going on is probably going to be off. And you'll eventually learn like when I'm thinking about playing a fast drum fill, I know that I have to play it slower than I think I should for it to actually be in time. So keep up the great work and we'll see in the practice video
