I want to show you a drum fill from one of my favorite drummers: Jeff Porcaro. This fill is taken from Toto’s song “Africa”, and I love the use of spacing in it. It’s a nice change to the crazy fills that you see highlighted all the time, and it fits the song perfectly.
Jeff had two variations of the fill, so I’ve covered both of them in the video. Go ahead and download the sheet music so you can follow along. And make sure to leave your comments below!
