Developing Fill Ideas from Grooves

Ideas on how to develop musical and creative fills by applying rhythmic and orchestration concepts to the patterns that appear in your grooves.

In this pack, Stephane Chamberland shares ideas on how to develop musical and creative fills by applying rhythmic and orchestration concepts to the patterns that appear in your grooves. He begins by taking the 3:2 son clave rhythm and applying it to a groove. In the first lesson Stephane plays the groove and then isolates the clave rhythm on snare drum. The second lesson explores the different sound and voicing options available on the full drumset using just this one rhythm. Lesson three adds ghost notes and different orchestrations on the cymbals to the same rhythm, while lesson four adds double strokes between the principal notes of the rhythm. In lesson 5 a different rhythm is used to demonstrate the use of diddles in a groove and related fills. Stephane then incorporates flams into the fill.

All of these concepts are presented as ideas that can be applied to any fill you choose, giving you tools to create fills and phrases that are both cohesive and creative, since groove and fill are related rhythmically.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  • Fill from Groove: 3:2 Clave
  • Sound Combinations
  • Ghost Notes & Cymbal Orchestrations
