Please update Zoom on your phone so you can access the “Use Original Sound” function. This will allow me to hear your drums much more clearly. Once updated, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom mobile app.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Meetings.
  4. Tap the toggle to enable Use Original Sound.

Goal: Feel comfortable improvising (making up on the spot) the hand part only in this fill. Then, play 3 bars of a drum beat of your choosing followed by 1 bar of fill (just like in our lesson).


Goal: Feel comfortable playing Transition (option #1). Feel comfortable playing the chorus cymbal part only (with metronome at 110, cut-time feel). Start slow with the chorus bit and work your way up to speed.
