Commentary:

Thirty-second notes are frequently used in percussion, either included in the pattern or for breaks. Practising thirty-second notes is very important, since by mastering them you will gain a great deal of speed and agility. Once you have completed the exercise, combine it with the full drumkit. You should avoid always playing the exercises the same way. This will help you to gain fluency and enrich your vocabulary.
