Improve Your Jazz Drumming with Snare Drum Comping

The snare drum comping exercises in this lesson are designed to improve your left-hand control within jazz drumming. All of the patterns are based around the basic jazz pattern, but include unique snare drum patterns designed to challenge your limb-independence. The beats can be a little tricky, so work through them slowly at first to ensure you are practicing them correctly.
