You can play it hand to hand on the snare, or both hands playing the same thing/simultaneously between the snare and floor tom, you hammer out the 1/4 notes on the bass drum. It's a heavy 'walking' rhythm that can really drive the music if you keep it powerful and tight.

Thank you Purdie Shuffle

Thanks Drumguy, I liked seeing the video.

The riff itself probably comes from classical music or maybe traditional Spanish music.
Thanks for the input eamesuser!

It was a great question for a thread! I knew it was used a lot in metal music, but seeing these videos, now I realize it was used way more often than I thought!

March out!

Too many great drums to list here!
