Sing Your Rhythms

It sounds very vocal, that’s because it is. What I mean is actually finding ways to use your voice to sound like your drums. These are some suggestions, however it is a very personal thing. Feel free to use my sounds or create your own. Singing Rhythms gives you a chance to be able to better work out what you hear in your head or your favorite song when trying to convert them to your set. I can’t tell you how many countless days I would walk up and down my street singing beats, fills and air drumming.

Here is what it sounds like after you have mastered it!
