AC/DC Phil Rudd rock drumming video lesson

In the latest issue of Rhythm Magazine (January 2015, on sale now) we show you how to master a basic rock beat and fills to get you on the road to rocking behind the kit like classic rock and AC/DC drum legend Phil Rudd. Check out this first lesson, above, in association with Drumeo.

To put those exercises into practice here's a playalong track in the style of AC/DC for you to jam with. If you need some guidance watch tutor Dave Atkinson play through the track below.
