Rhythm 2

Hearing Terry play these basic ostinato patterns on a pad, then a 5-piece kit, then a monster kit, brings home the message that it’s not the size of the drumset you play that makes you a musical drummer, it’s the approach you take to whatever size drumset you have. Terry begins these patterns slowly and then builds speed, just as you will have to do. When you finish Rhythm 2, you will have a clear idea of the concept of ostinatos and there’s no better way to learn than from the master himself. Watch the preview and see full list of lessons below.
