Rim-shot

The rim-shot is often associated with a loud sound, but you can play rim-shots at any volume. The trick is to hit the drum away from the center of the head and strike the rim at the same time that you hit the head. Doing so creates overtones and gives the drum a higher pitched sound. By moving the tip of the stick closer to the rim, you get a thinner and quieter sound. (For rock drummers, you often want to hit the center of the drum when you do a rim-shot. This gives you that extra punch to cut through even the most obnoxious guitar solo.)
