I think you are on the money, Gareth.  That is the basic pop-rock pattern.  And from there you can embellish ... say dum ka dum dum ka etc etc and that is still just playing 1/8s.

I know this is becoming a drum chat, rather than a Tammy chat ... nevermind ...

I use a free drum VST plug which has a lot of pre-set grooves.  So if you record to a click track and play in good time, can add some reasonable sounding drums without knowing too much about drumming ;)

The back beat is 2 and 4 - the snare hits on 2 and 4

A backbeat can be on any beat but the one.
All it means is to accent a beat that usually isn't accented.
So beat 2. 3 or 4 can be a backbeat or any combination of the three.
The snare usually falls on the 2 and 4 but that isn't written in stone either.

I love this forum-
You can ask really basic questions and people point you in the right direction  :)

I am, however going to blame my big brother for my ignorance on this one:
When we were teenagers, he took up drums to play in a couple of rock & punk bands in school. It looked like fun and he showed me some of the basics- However, the guy he learnt from taught him to count in fours, but that was the eighth notes, so I have spent the last 4 decades thinking it was 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4 instead of 1 & 2 & 3 & 4.
I guess it didn't make that much of a difference if you weren't writing it down.

Learn something new every day...  :)

Loving this series of lessons. Perfect level for me. I feel as if I’m getting private lessons! Thanks Justin & Tammy.
