"drop beats"? in Hip hop

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by Pbassred, Mar 15, 2006.


  1. Hip hop:- What is a "drop beat"?
    I've been asked to play bass for a band. The tracks don't seem any trouble at all but the phase puzzles me.

    Not playing on 'the 1'.

    Sample rhythm on "1"-
    l1---2---3&a4---l

    Dropping "1"-
    l--&-2---3&a4---l
    Basically, displaced "1" to the "& of 1"

    Dropping/displacing more beats-
    l--&---&--&a4e--l
    More of a Backbeat bass figure.
