Ah yes, the skank beat. Loved by metalheads, punks, and thrashers the world over. Not so much by your grandparents, or your square friend who l-o-v-e-s Coldplay or other such driv.
But in any case, if you’re on Venomisto.com you obviously have good taste in music and enjoy a good skank now and again.
A quick rundown of some of the skank beat variations we cover in this stream:
- Skank beat
- D beat
- Giddy-up skank
- Power metal beat
- Down skank
Also ran through some other variations, played with a couple basic arrangements (including from Metallica – Battery, Slayer – Angel of Death, and Pantera – Fuckin’ Hostile), and shared a couple tips related to fills and keeping your programmed drums “playable.”
If you enjoyed this one, give a shout in the comments, and definitely let me know if there are other extreme drum beats you want me to cover or go deeper on.
Until next time..
