can someone explain blast beats to me? im not really a big fan of that genre but i hear it all over the place...maybe i know wat it is when i hear it but i just dont know the term.....help me out guys!!!
As said above there are two versions of a " blast beat " One is the bass,and hands being played simultaniously ( probably the most co-ordinated drumming line there is,lol ) and they other is playing your feet with your hands going opposite each other.so instead of do do do all at once,you have do da do da do da.I think they have their time and place in heavy music.I personally am not a huge fan and use them very very sparingly with my black metal band.I would prefer not to use them...but sometimes things are written and they have to be used and its always good to have some extra tools in the box.As you never know what life may deal you in the world of music.
a blast beat isnt what everyones explaing. your both hands dont hit at the smae time. asnd blast beat is in essence a single stroke roll between your snare and your hi hats or ride or crash or whatever. and your right bass drum hits with your right hand, if your plasying a double bass blast beat they your left foot will also hit with your left hand. big bad drummer boi is correct
