- Practice measures individually, then in the following sequence:
Ex. 1-2, 1-3, 1-4... 2-3, 2-4, 2-5... 3-4, 3-5, 3-6... etc.
On sequences, play each measure once or twice:
Ex. 1-2-1-2..., or 1-1-2-2-1-1-2-2... etc.
- Notes in parenthesis are for making transitions between exercises without a crossover.
- Practice these in the quarter note = 120-160 range. You should be able to fly around the drums with these.
- Typo alert: Ex.8, second beat- play the right hand double on the floor tom.
