Artemi Kor is a performer, studio musician, and educator.
Want to improve your swing ride cymbal pattern? Watch Artemi Kor using his HingeStix practice drumsticks here. The first tap stroke is followed by the throw of beat 2, and the remaining notes just fall by way of gravity. Then it's repeated. Beautiful.
Check out Artemi’s triplet fills. It’s a great way to get started with the figure (cymbal hit after the fill) on the “and” of beat 3.
