Ex­pand your hori­zons…

Rhythm - - WELCOME! - Stuart Wil­liams, Ed­i­tor stuart.wil­[email protected]­turenet.com

Have you ever found your­self in a mu­si­cal sit­u­a­tion where you felt out of your com­fort zone? It’s a wor­ry­ing po­si­tion to be put in, par­tic­u­larly if you’re per­form­ing in front of peo­ple – and even if you’ve been play­ing for years, it’s cer­tainly some­thing that can come from out of nowhere. This month we’re tak­ing a look at how to play the core grooves for a num­ber of styles out­side of ba­sic rock mu­sic.

From sim­ple jazz pa­terns to New Or­leans-style grooves and disco beats, the idea is that our lessons will give you a ground­ing in mul­ti­ple styles that you might have shied away from, or just never found your­self need­ing to play. With these un­der your belt, you’ll be equipped with the beats you need in or­der to sound au­then­tic in most mu­si­cal sit­u­a­tions that are likely to come up on a gig.

Also this month, we take a look at how to play The Po­lice’s ‘Can’t Stand Los­ing You’ – and to cel­e­brate the reis­sue of Me­tal­lica’s sem­i­nal …AndJus­tice ForAll al­bum, we’re show­ing you how to tackle one of Lars Ul­rich’s most recog­nis­able drum tracks, ‘One’.

We catch up with Gregg Bis­sonette and Jimmy Cham­ber­lin, and take a look around Mike Port­noy’s mam­moth Sons Of Apollo kit, and there’s the usual col­lec­tion of the best new drum gear on the mar­ket.See you next month – when we’ll be sit­ting down with Mr Ste­wart Copeland!
