You Suck At Producing (aka Underbelly) has numerous videos and accompanying project files for a number of production and melodic techniques. In his latest video, he shows how he adds energy to drums using Ableton live - the principles being applicable to all daws. He goes through making drum parts for various sections of a track, adding some excellent advice for how and why to make such changes.
Underbelly is offering a free drum sample pack and drum cheat sheet to accompany the video. He's is in the process of making a series called 'You Suck At Drums', this video being 3rd in the series. You can support him on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/yousuckatproducing
