  1. when i studied over the summer with billy hart, he gave us a max roach fill. the more i listen to max, the more i notice how he uses it in almost every solo he plays and in the first video he plays it at around 2:37.
    its triplets played on toms and snare, but he plays it so many different ways

    Where did you study with Billy ?

  3. Hi Conor, Could you put a version of that particular lesson online? I am really interested. Thanks in advance.
