Brandon Khoo: Drum Fills That Sound Musical
We have a ton of lessons that cover flashy fills and chops, but this lesson is focused on adding flavor to your playing while still remaining musical. Brandon Khoo is our first ever guest drummer from Singapore, too!
Remember to download the sheet music above and follow along. Don’t focus on the fills too much themselves, but rather the actual concept of how to add flavor through simple additions and variations. Always put the music first!
