Here is a very short drum lesson video tutorial to show a gospel drum fill. This is based on the drumming style of guys such as Aaron Spears, Tony Royster, or even the funkster Peter Ray Biggin.

Watch the video below which shows the fill at full speed, and then slows it right down so you can easily see what is being played.

Be aware that the fill actually starts on the ‘&’ of beat 4 so that might take some getting used to at first. It’s worth the practice as fills that move across the bar line can create some really interesting phrases.
