Rock Drumming & More…

Rock drumming

Rock is a style of music developed in response to the rise of electric powered guitars and amplifiers, television, jukeboxes and the 45 vinyl record.  There was also an attendant cultural aspect that came with Rock ‘n Roll, namely that of the person out of step with regular society.  So Rock ‘n Roll was the expression of a whole new generation of post World War 2 young people who sought to break from the ‘old world’.

Rock drumming features accented beats fall on 1, 2, 3, 4.  where the 1 and 3 are bass drum accents and the 2 and 4 are snare drum accents.  The use of regular 8th and 16th note and triplet fills also became a feature of Rock drumming.  Though there are many splinters and fusions of Rock drumming we shall explore the most basic example and definition.

Here are some examples of rock drumming by some of the past masters
