EXERCISE3 ba­sic per­cus­sion

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Video -

Here we’re com­bin­ing a ‘bass drum’ groove on beats two and four played with the pick­ing hand with a sim­ple ham­mer-on and pull-off power-chord line on the fret­ting hand. The bass drum sound is pro­duced with a fret­ting-hand heel ‘thump’ that gives a nice ap­prox­i­ma­tion of a bass drum. As far as the rhythm for the fret­ting hand goes, just keep an eye out for the off­beat groove of the pick­ing hand: the only time both hand ac­tions co­in­cide is the pull- off on beat four of ev­ery other bar.
