I agree to deletion or merging. A drum beat as described here is really a rhythm pattern. A "drum beat" in my understanding is a single strike. A series of drum beats create a rhythm pattern. So the list of Drum Beats here would be more accurately called a list of Characteristic Rhythm patterns. Freddythehat 10:27, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
