Trying to get a student to get their 16th note bass drum grooves consistent? Demons by Imagine Dragons is great song for working on a consistent 16th note bass drum pattern. The pattern doesn’t vary for almost the whole song. There are no fills to get distracted by. This allows students to really focus on nailing the groove.
The challenge is to make the groove as consistent as Daniel Platzman does. Students working on this song should record themselves practicing the groove and listen back to notice any inconsistencies. I recommend starting at a slow tempo (60bpm) and gradually building up speed, checking for any problems along the way.
Working on a famous song by one of the most popular bands in the world is a great way to motivate students.
