Here we work on independence, one of the most interesting aspects of the drum kit. These exercises were influenced by those created by the drummer Kenny Arnoff. Watch out that the cymbal maintains one figure, the snare is in the 2-4, the hi-hat with crotchets and we read with the bass drum. Figures of one, two, and three beats. These exercises have helped me a lot to work on ambidexterity and all students of mine who have used them have been surprised with the results. Speed (crotchets) = 60 and (crotchets) = 70. Here we use the third and fourth semiquaver. As commented above, there is a quaver pause, and it is essential for you to sing in order to place the beats correctly. Listen to yourself to see if your beats and your voice are one and thre same thing. Avoid flams.
