Hey Drummers,

This video drum lesson looks at the classic Chuck E’s In Love drum fill. If you’ve ever heard the track then you know which fill I’m referring to. It’s a beautiful piece of understated Steve Gadd magic. A typical example of Gadd making great use of rudiments with a slight twist, stunning dynamic control and that little touch of the unexpected without showing off and taking anything away from the track. And of course, expertly executed.

This Check E’s In Love drum fill is one of those that all drummers should know how to play, and it will no doubt inspire you to employ such techniques and approaches in your own creations on the drum kit.
