Moving the Meter Ep. 61

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 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..
