Part 3: Linear Motion

by Florian Alexandru-Zorn

Many drummers think that brushes can only be used in jazz, but if you’ve been following this series, and practicing the various patterns in each one, you should realize now that brushes can be used in any musical style.

Click below to watch a video demonstrating several of the examples from the article.
