Commentary:

Quintuplets are a mostly unfamiliar figure and placing two accents in quintuplets poses a series of problems. First of all, because it is an odd figure and therefore in the first quarter note the first stroke of the quintuplet will be with the right hand, and the first stroke of the second quarter note with the left hand. Next, it is a combination that is not often used in our popular music styles, but as with the rest of the exercises, it forms part of the musical vocabulary and needs to be mastered. Remember that it will also help you later on to grasp bars of odd time and polyrhythms.
