How to Play the Drum
The basic position
Both hands and both feet are used!
Place the right foot on the bass drum pedal and the left foot on the hi-hat pedal. Each hand holds a stick, and the left hand plays the snare drum, while the right hand is used to strike the hi-hat. This is the basic position. The foundation of the rhythm is created by the snare and the bass drum, and the hi-hat rides on top of this as filler.
