This looks good from the description.

I  DO  need help in my drumming - I have tried to create a collection 
of patterns, but they all sound the same, some just have more splashes 
than the others  D'oh

I'm trying to get a Buddy Holly / Peggy Sue sound happening, but I 
always get back to a standard 4/4 beat ala The Rolling Stones.    Even 
my pitiful attempts at a reggae end up having the standard (thump, 
whack, thump, whack) 4/4 rock sound

Ah well....  That's why they made practice.
