Hey Drummers,

Here we are looking at some linear funk drum beats. Linear drumming involves only hitting one voice of the drum kit at a time. Where we would normally layer different sounds together, such as bass drum and hi-hat played simultaneously, linear drum patterns do not do this.

The sound is very funky so we are starting by looking at some linear funk drum grooves here which are very simple and very effective.

They will add a totally different approach to your playing if you’ve never tried linear drumming before, and should open up new creative avenues for you to explore.
