Positively Polyrhythmic - Modulation / Polyrhythms Drum lesson

Positively Polyrhythmic - Modulation / Polyrhythms Drum lesson.

This is definitely in the category of advanced drum lessons!

This free drum lesson is all about polyrhythms and metric modulation.

What is a polyrhythm? A Polyrhythm is the simultaneous use of two or more rhythms that are not readily perceived as deriving from one another, or as simple manifestations of the same meter. (wikipedia's definition!)

Essentially it is when there is more than one rhythm being played at the same time. In this case we have 8th note triplets, quarter notes and quarter note triplets!

This lesson is great for building drum independence, timing and building your music theory knowledge.

I show you how to play polyrhythms as well as a quick metric modulation example too!

Metric modulation is the change in a rhythms pulse without changing the root tempo. This can have really cool effects when used tastefully and once you understand it, it can be a huge tool in your arsenal!

Hope you enjoy the drum lesson!
