How to Play the Drum
The basic position

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.
