Hi, Welcome back to week three of drum lessons music. This week, we're going to complete our first rock drum pattern. And we're going to begin exploring playing eighth notes on different places on the drum kit. One thing I wanted to start out with, though, was talking about breathing. Now in the practice videos in the first few weeks, I had you do some breathing in and then breathing out when you make a sound. On the drum kit, it's not necessary to breathe out to make the instrument make it sound the way it is on a trumpet or saxophone for example.

But it's really important to remember to keep air flowing through your body. In some ways, it's easier when you play one instrument to keep this in mind because you're forced to be breathing deeply all the time. But on instruments like the drums or the guitar or the piano, sometimes it can be a problem where your body tightens up and you're not getting enough oxygen. So try and remember to keep breathing deeply as you're playing Especially as you start doing things that are more and more complicated, the tendency to hold your breath and tighten, remember to keep breathing deeply while you're making your sound. Alright, so to complete our rock pattern, we're going to add eighth notes to the hi hat. So eighth notes are going to be two strokes for each click of the metronome.

Now, what I want you to do is play them with your right hand. So rather than alternating hands, which we're going to do later, I want you to play with just your right hand because it's going to complete our rock pattern. So for starters, you're just going to be literally playing eighth notes. Then we're going to be adding in both feet with the eighth notes. So we start with the kick, and then the hi hat, so we like. Then we're going to add in our left hand playing when the Hi Hat opens and closes to complete our rock pattern.

Now once you have both hands and both feet going with the metronome, you may have this weird feeling like time is speeding up or slowing down. This is a totally natural thing. Your body is not equally proportioned with muscle and speed. For example, often if you're right handed, your right foot might be a little bigger than your left foot or your right ear. We look like we're symmetrical but we're not. So getting used to playing in time on an instrument like the drums, it takes a bit of getting used to your body has to do it.

You'll feel yourself speeding up and slowing down. You'll notice that one hand or one foot might be faster than the other. They're also traveling different distances depending on what you're doing. So just be patient. Try and listen for the rhythm of the click track and remember to keep breathing deeply. Alright, great work and we'll see in the practice video.
