Learn To Play Broken Eighth Note Fills for Rock

This lesson features six broken eighth note fills that fit well within many styles of rock music. The biggest change between these patterns, and the regular eighth note fills, is that these patterns have rests. In other words, the notes aren't continous for the entire measure. Watch the video lesson for demonstrations of all the fills.
