A tour through some classic beats in a variety of genres, with visualizations. Transcriptions of the drum patterns discussed in this video, along with many others, can be found here:

The radial visualization scheme comes from Ethan's NYU masters thesis:

really like the circular diagram. visualizing patterns in this way makes much more sense than the drum machine grid. would be interested in seeing patterns outside of 4/4 and attempting to find visual symmetry

swing and slide are the most important for getting a good feel to a beat. Sometimes delaying the high hats by about 5-15 ms can make a big difference. Another trick is to just slide the kicks a bit early. When compared to a square beat where everything is exactly on time you will notice a nice difference.
Here are the timestamps for the patterns :)

On 'The Levee break', the 'dissonant' kicks are 'delay returns', rather than actual kicks.

As a musician who has never had a drum session longer than 10 minutes, this is going to be incredibly useful for my solo 'career'. Thank you so much for this. You deserve a Nobel prize, you saint.

Thank you so much! I have struggled with drum programming in a big way. This spreadsheet is a Godsend!

Thanks. Though it seems to me you are confusing 8th notes with 16th notes. You suggest counting to 4 twice (1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+). But with the drum patterns that really is one single measure in 4/4 => 1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a

Just started watching this and a, typing while I watch. Thanks for doing this! This is by far the best tutorial I’ve found on drums EVER. I’ve done Udemy courses, Groove 3 and others, and while they all have some amazing stuff, you are the man when it comes to context and demos. I am enjoying all the background on each.

Interesting to see these classic breaks visualized. However what makes 'levee breaks' and 'funky drummer' so compelling is the additional micro information (swing, timing and volume variations) that are not represented in the diagrams.

You’re a bloody genius mate! Great visualisation. If you were to put a rotating hand like on a clock/watch following the beat on this psychedelic pie chart you’d have it nailed 😎

Your videos are so well done. Thanks for the knowledge. As others have said, you make it what can be difficult to understand digestible. Thanks for the leap forward Ethan!

It will take me a bit of study to 'see' the circular representation but I think it will be very useful to see how the pattern elements relate to each other. Thanks very much for this. A very clear communication of the idea with super examples. I subscribed.
