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. In this exercise we will work with the first and fourth semiquaver. Be careful not to end up swinging and going on to a triplet, for this figure is always related to one of the main patterns (shuffle) of jazz. Think and sing semiquavers.
