ok so i'm trying to convince my brother to drum with me and a buddie (we both play guitar and drums) and he's not too fond with the idea of bass. so we need songs that are retard easy on drums and quick to learn on guitar....and it kinda needs to sound good with only two guitarists....and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask

just have the drummer play the basic of all basic drum beats and play any song over it...

it's quarter notes on the high hat, half note bass drums and snare on beat 4
My Guitars:
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Epiphone AJ
Ibanez Strat Copy

Amps:
Orange Tiny Terror Head
Old beaten up Peavey cab
Marshall MG30DFX

if you have a drum set, why play rock band? ya i know you actually get the feeling of songs and timing and ****....but seriously...if he is on medium, it wont help him.


its the drums....tell him to start banging on the ****ers and find something that sounds good and is steady...he doesnt have to be crazy technical to get a cool drum beat.

Have him do that beat. That is 90% of the songs in the world.

if it's a 3/4 song have him play:


        1 & 2 & 3 &  1 & 2 & 3 &
hi hat |x---x---x---|x---x---x---|
snare  |------------|o-----------|
bass   |o-----------|------------|


or with eightnotes in the hi-hat:


        1 & 2 & 3 &  1 & 2 & 3 &
hi hat |x-x-x-x-x-x-|x-x-x-x-x-x-|
snare  |------------|o-----------|
bass   |o-----------|------------|
