Trinity Rock and Pop Drums Grade 3

What a great song!

An all time favourite of mine, so very happy to have this one in the grade 3 syllabus. This one is also a Technical Focus song, so there are a couple of important things to think about while playing it - the 'pushes' and the crotchet / quarter note triplet flams.

I explain in the video how to do flams and also sixteenth note triplets, but decide not to go onto the quarter note triplets too as I just didn't want the lesson to become too long and boring for some.

The best way to get a feel for these things is to listen to and play along with the song.

Here's the lesson:

Here's the original track:

And if you're really getting into the theory, here's a great lesson on how to count triplets:
