Warren Cann's Electro-Drum Column (Part 1)
Whether you're an acoustic kit player or a drum machine programmer, this column's for you! We've invited Warren Cann, our consultant drummer with the internationally known group Ultravox, to get our readers trying out rhythms with their Syntoms, Synwaves, Hexadrums, Electric Drummers, micros and skins. Here's the first one of the series which contains Warren's own drum rhythm ideas that he's used.
"Hi, it's a great pleasure to be able to reach so many of today's (and tomorrow's) electro-musicians through this column. I'll be covering a very wide range of rhythms that I've used in my playing and in this first part I'll obviously be commencing with some basic beats for you to experiment with.
"All the examples will be available shortly on a narrated cassette for you to have alongside the music and I've added comments on each example below for rhythms that have a disco beat. Try them all!"
