Having a hard time thinking of a rhythm to try on your drum? Try this "name game": pick a name with more than two syllables, for instance, how about "Huckleberry Finn". Say the name first out loud a few times, (or in your head if you're shy) then play it on your drum, striking your drum for each syllable. In this case, your hands would be striking, right-left-right-left-right, left-right-left-right-left, repeat. After you get comfortable with this, try adding "loves ice cream" (or make up your own) to finish off the sentence. Your "drum song" will sound a little different depending on where you place the emphasis on your words. Have Fun!!
