Phrasing Fills in 16ths

Mark Guiliana provides several examples of how to move a 16th-note fill around in the bar to start and end in different places, sometimes going over the bar line, expanding your ability to play interesting fills.

In this pack, leading jazz/improvisational drummer Mark Guiliana shows you an effective series of examples to teach you how to move a fill around in the measure. These fills don’t start or end in the “normal” place in each measure, so this series of examples will expand your ability to hear fills and figures in different places in the bar, and to play over the bar lines when desired.
