Did I hear somone yell drum solo? Yes, unfortunately I did. – Are you prepared to take a drum solo? It’s not as hard as you think you know. Like anything else, you just take it a step at a time. Learn to play drum solos by watching other drummers and emulating what they do. Of course you can also buy drum lesson books that have solos in them. But you can also just make them up!
