Understanding the Styles: Blues

Understanding the Styles: Blues

This month we continue on our stylistic journey into one of my favorites, the blues. The blues is the basis for the many drummers we listen to today. Playing the blues can help you understand song forms and chord structures, whch is very important to understand. Dynamics are very important. Once again make sure you listen to the music you are trying to play. Have fun!
