    I thought this would be a pretty good idea, especially for newbies at dnb production. Ive been producing a few months now and ive wanted to see a thread like this for a while. Basically just post the name of the break and how it is constructed (hi-hats, shakers, kicks, snares etc.) Heres an example:

    Amen Break

    K > K > > > K > > > K K > > > >
    H > H > H > H > H > H > H > H >
    > > > > S > > S > S > > S > > >

    K - Kick
    H - Hi-Hat
    S - Snare

    Hope you all like the idea :D

    bUT FOR REAL, download some basic jungle break from anywhere on the net and listen to the rolls - then chop it up into pieces and try to reconstruct it again yourself beat by beat. That'll give you the idea how the little hits in between work.
