I know a lot of us want to create backing tracks and drum tracks for our songs. I know a lot of us also use varied drum software for this. It would be cool if a drum instructor or someone well versed in it could create a series of lessons on the basics of programming various techniques for better drum tracks. Define the various terms used in drumming and generally how to apply them to our software.

Thats a good idea. Although I tried at one point to create my own drums. Talk about time consuming. I realized that its bleeding into my guitar practicing time.

I use a software package called EZ Drummer with the Drum Kit from hell addon. Just drag and drop.
There is also a country kit, twizted it, and claustophobic kit which gives you wicked drum beats.

Its a VST for DAW.

Many of them comes with premade beats and fills that you can drag and drop to fit most of your needs. It does require some kind of understanding of drums if you want to make your own, start out with a simple beat 4/4 smile.gif I guess lessons on this topic would be helpfull for alot though, so good suggestion.

Guys there are already some drum tutorial videos on GMC by a former instructor - Kyle Logue. Do a search on his name and you'll find them.

Also - you might want to look at some full band scores to get an idea of what a drum score/pattern looks like. There are also a number of drum sequencer progs that come with a selection of drum fills etc, usually midi and you can also analyse these.
Cheers,
Tony

I just found this topic through search, as I was about to create a similar one.

I am also pretty much looking forward to have classes on this.

I am watching Kyle's classes now...
