The Most Famous Drum Beat In The World - Drum Lesson

  • Publicado el 23 oct 2013
  • Have you ever wondered what drum beat is the most famous in the world?
    I was definitely curious, so I did some research and found that the "Funky Drummer" beat by Clyde Stubblefield has been the most sampled drum groove ever (it's been sampled 7 million times!). It's just a basic 16th note groove, but the hi-hat part, ghost notes, and overall feel make this beat one of the hardest to play.
    I should also mention that I am playing the notes just like Clyde did. But I am not playing it with the same feel. That would be impossible for me or any other drummer in this world. So I recommend you learn the groove, but then play it the way you want to play it. Hopefully, it will inspire you to create the next most famous drum beat in the world!

    This beat is an awesome beat to play, and I believe the pattern you're playing is correct. It's great that this guy has shown people how to play it and broken it down to a level accessible to most drummers. But there is a lot to be said about tuning your drums to match the sound of the original beat. Listen to the sound of Clyde's drums, not just the rhythmic patterns he's playing, and you'll see why this doesn't sound anything like that beat. His snare is dead and snaps - this snare rings and echoes. His bass drum reverberates much less than this guys. Also, the fill he played at the end is absurdly complex for the feel of this music. It's not just about what you play, but how you play it and how it fits into the context of the tune.

    Jared, I have to say I love how you ALWAYS say in your videos that your methods of doing things on the drumset is just YOUR way of doing it, and that no one else has to do it like you. And you still get hecklers that complain about your drums. Which is nonsense anyway because you have some of the best sounding drums I've ever heard. That is all. Good day, sir.

    Great lesson on a great beat. I've been playing my own versions of this beat for years, but I struggle with the tempo of the original recording. I'm working on the open-closed right hand technique (good for jazz samba and speed metal as well), but it's taking me ages! Porcaro's right hand on Georgy Porgy is even faster! Maybe you could do a lesson on that type of beat, specifically addressing ways to improve leading hand speed on the hi-hat or ride? After all you mention that issue at the end of the video. Or maybe you already have?

  • Casa de España en Manitoba

    Very interesting! I recall that exact beat on a Public Enemy song...and countless other times as well. Very, very interesting. There is definitely something to be said for you young people playing the drums and the beats, rhythms, and so forth you have to memorize. Fascinating!!

    It seemed far too complex when he was playing it slowly (16 beats). It was when he played it at full pace that I realised I had been playing similar beats for years. I find it so easy to play quick rhythms like this - learnt by ear.
    This guy has got a lovely technique and a great sounding kit.

    I'm not a drummer nor have I ever played in a band that used drums. But I've been a professional musician for around four decades and the entire endeavor has been the progressive discovery of my inadequacies. This guy seems to be a perfectly nice gentleman and from what little I know this could be helpful to someone interesting in learning drums. I may even take them up my own self. But to my point: I doubt if any of the naysayers below have much to offer musically. Great musicians, and I know a bunch of them, generally aren't given to personal attacks, particularly on those who are enthusiastic about learning and teaching. Further, sometimes the most powerful notes are the ones you leave out. I've spent the past half of my career learning what not to play. So leave this fellow be. He hasn't offended anyone. Find a channel with Buddy Rich or Mick Fleetwood playing and impress everyone by pointing out their shortcomings. You are at best of no help here and at worst a nuisance.

I'm soo proud of you!! for the record I can fart much smoother notes than you play in that video. Be careful casting stones dude especially when you live in a glass house. Jared is a really good personality and a good teacher (especially for ones who are in the beginning stages of their musical journey). He doesn't have to be the worlds greatest drummer to educate and inspire others, making fun of him only proves the level of maturity in which you choose to conduct yourself. Please do us all a favour and pull your bottom lip over your head and swallow.

    • Justin Grace
      Justin Grace Hace 6 años

      @***** Well lucky for you, I didn't quite make it to that cliff!! The Dubstep/EDM comment is directed at drummers who have used a metronome so much that they lose their ability to "feel the beat".
      The more you keep misunderstanding what educated people say, then comment on how idiotic they are, makes you sound just as idiotic as the people you troll who actually have a dog in this fight. I've played drums for over 16 years now. So I believe i can cover anything this guy can and definitely have the understanding to comment on this subject.
      I completely agree with you on every single point of EDM/Dubstep being talentless bullshit computer generated crap. There is definitely a faction in the drumming community who become robots and metronome nuts and you can hear that in their playstyle/automated feel when they play. That's all I meant by the EDM comment. Think of Bonham or peart, then come look at this guy. He's a robot... *Sits Indian style on soapbox and grabs some popcorn* lol, relax man

    This was one of the first beats I taught myself, probably when I started at 8 years old in 1968. It sounded much tighter a few years later when I got a bit bigger and stronger. I never knew at the time it was a famous beat. Just thought it was something I made up.

    I welcome Drumeo's contribution to good beats, sampling stats aside, but this is not even close to the top five in the lexicon of famous beats, which are:
    1. The Bo Diddley beat
    2. I Got the Feelin', James Brown
    3. Twist and Shout, The Beatles
    4. Money, Pink Floyd
    5. Good Times Bad Times, Led Zep
    And remember, Drumeo, love means never having to apologize for being a white drummer.

    Great advice on how drummers can't sound just like another drummer. It's best just to find your own style and feel on the kit and develope your own nuances as you become more comfortable with drumming.

    It can be done, however it requires a switch from focus on playing the 16ths on the hat to getting the feel right, and to playing the notes that Clyde plays on the kick and the snare. That part (his kick/snare pattern) is a bit tricky, but he demos the basics (with a slightly different feel) here: esclips.com/video/_55a_Sje0lY/vídeo.html -- note also that Clyde doesn't do the 16ths on the hat, and I've never seen a video where he plays it that way. I suspect that part was played by someone else or overdubbed on the recording.

  • Peter Neville

    Excellent video lesson! Just a thought, especially for younger drummers or the not so young, it might be a little easier to play if you think of playing the 16ths with slight 8th note accents (with a down up motion of the wrist/forearm) rather than accenting the open hi hat on 'e' and 'a'. It helps to just play with the tip of the stick, no shaft. Then add the hi hat foot on '2 &', '3', and '4 &' as an accent, imagining it like the sound of a Cabasa being thrown into the part. That way there's not as much emphasis on the open hi hat and it makes it a little easier, as the hi hat hand stays consistent. This can also help achieving the speed of the 16ths, whilst still staying relaxed. It helps to just play with the tip of the stick, no shaft. This also, to my ears, makes the groove sound more like the original, if that is something you'd like to achieve. But any way you play it, it's a great beat. Thanks for the video.
    Cheers,

    I would think that the "most famous" drum beat in the world would be a simple 4/4 beat. LOL

    My favorite drum beat of all time is the last few minutes of Opeth's Reveries/Harlequin Forest.

    I actually use this drum beat a lot. I started noticing it when I heard it in Good Life by One Republic

    I play drums and I was thinking of getting new drum heads for my snare and toms, but I'm not sure what drum heads to get. I have some in mind but I just cant make a decision. What heads do you recommend/use because I like your sound. I also wanted to thank you for making these types of videos because I have learned many cool techniques/beats/styles all from watching your videos. Thanks

      I managed to play it at the fast tempo but without the opened hi hats inbetween. Till i also get the Hi-Hat right it might take some more years haha :D the beat is way harder than it sounds

      Mike, just for your own information, I have moved on from drumming only, to learn keyboarding and singing. I am working on a project which includes performing Rush material. You're wasting your time "trying" to insult me!! Only those who know me, can insult me. You are in the dark, and you are more than welcomed to stay there, if that's what you prefer. Look around and realize you don't know what the f*ck you are talking about. OK?

      @Randy Paul Funny how you demand people upload videos of themselves to show credibility, yet you have zero videos yourself.
      I don't feel the need to prove myself to illiterate trolls like yourself. You're going nowhere -- you've been trolling and talking shit in the comments of this video for MONTHS now. Clearly your life is so centered around hatred that it's hard to achieve anything. Or, maybe you are so frustrated because you haven't achieved anything, that your life is now centered around hatred? I guess we'll never know. What a shame. Blocked you. Goodbye!

      Hey, Mikey, are you drummer? Why don't you have some videos of yourself playing drums, on ESclips. If you claim to be drummer, post some videos up; so we can know if you are for real, or just full of sh*t. Are you in a band? Do you have any credentials at all?? I think you're NOT worth discussing!

    The bass drum sounds amazing.

  • Drumeo
    Drumeo  Hace 9 años

    It's a tough situation. I've heard how they say they came up with a lot of the music (jam out to a groove, then write a melody over top of that), but there were no contracts at the time stating that each member of the band is getting songwriting credit. You gotta have contracts prior to writing like that!

    I thought the most famous drum beat was like this:
    Hi-hat: h
    Snare: s
    Kick: k
    h h h h
    s And then repeat.
    k

    Jared, you may well be a white Canadian, but you play this beat to perfection. You're a great drummer.

  • R. Austin
    R. Austin Hace 8 años

    He said "one of the most famous".. That's definitely true! It was a staple in Hip-Hop sampling and even indie/alt rock of the 90's drummers were using a form of this beat. Just check out Nirvana's Teen Spirit and even Paula Cole's song, I Dont' Want To Wait... You'll be surprised and hopefully enlightened.
