3 Metal Double Kick Beats For Beginners

Ash Pearson  /  UPDATED Aug 25, 2022

Ash from Revocation is here to show you three double bass grooves every beginner metal drummer should know: a straight forward single stroke pattern, a triplet groove, and a gallop pattern. If you need to break them down further, take away one hand or foot to see what the relationship is between each limb. Try to resist playing fast right off the bat; make sure you’re comfortable at a slow tempo before you build speed.
