Watch the Drop It online guitar lesson by Freekbass from Funktronic Groove Construction
In this segment, we'll go over how to do effective "drops". Very popular in genres like dubstep, the DJ creates an anticipation-type groove usually at a faster tempo, then breaks it down in 1/2 time with big drums sounds and distorted bass. It creates very powerful and exciting moments at live shows. We'll go through what kind of beats and sounds to use to create the effect. Freek will add to this "drop" with heavier bass tones.
