Drum Fills

Drum fills refer to the short bursts of beats often played by the drummer to transition between different sections of a song.

Drum fills serve two primary purposes in music. Firstly, they act as a transition, smoothly guiding the listener from one section to another. Secondly, they add a touch of creativity and excitement to the music. 

Music is brimming with fantastic examples of drum fills. Think of iconic rock songs like “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, where John Bonham’s legendary drum fill adds intensity before the guitar solo. Or the iconic intro drum fill of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana.

In summary, drum fills are those thrilling drumming moments that can add flair and excitement to a song. They serve as connecting bridges between different sections of a song while injecting it with an extra dose of rhythm and creativity.
