In this lesson I’ll show you how to play a fill used in the track ‘Hip Today’ by Extreme, featuring Dream Theatre’s new drummer, Mike Mangini.
This two beat fill played over beats 1 & 2 of a 4/4 measure and is comprised of 16th note triplets (sextuplets). It contains two linear 5 patterns and is played in the bar before the final choruses of the tune after the guitar solo.
