How to play Blank Space by Taylor Swift

 

This song begins with the snare drum playing 2 and 4 and as it continues, the kick drum enters and begins a two bar phrase. Because of it’s repetitive nature, you can quickly learn this beat and play along with the song, developing your ability to keep a constant groove for several minutes at a time.  You can also add your hi-hat on 8th notes (or quarters) if you want to turn this groove into a more “traditional” drum set beat. Have fun with this and use this beat to help develop your confidence, concentration and consistency!

Below is the transcription of the beat, and if you would like a PDF of this, get in touch and I'll send one your way!
