Does your beat currently sound something like this? (click play above) There’s nothing wrong with that beat, but it’s not very interesting either. So, if you want your drums to grab the listener’s attention, then here’s one of our fastest yet most powerful drum hacks!
The main role of drums is to provide a rhythmic foundation for the music. When that’s all they do though, it’s easy for them to blend into the background. But, if something in that foundation jumps out unexpectedly, the listener’s attention is instantly brought back to the music. And the fastest way to do that is to displace one snare hit. However, this is so powerful, you only need to do it every two or four bars.
Hope you found this hack helpful, and if you did, then check out our DRUMS page for more!
