This exercise consists of 2 parts. In the first part work with the right hand (R) on the cymbal, left hand (L) on the snare (SN), and bass drum (BD). The HiHat is always on quarter notes. In the second part, do the same with reversed hands. Bar 1 – Right hand plays all eighth notes of the triplet on cymbal (Cym). Left hand plays second and fourth quarter notes in the bar on snare (SN). Bass drum plays first and third quarter notes in the bar. HiHat plays all quarter notes. Bar 2 – Left hand plays all eighth notes of the triplet on cymbal (Cym). Right hand plays second and fourth quarter notes in the bar on snare (SN). Bass drum plays first and third quarter notes in the bar. HiHat plays all quarter notes.

 

Commentary:

It is somewhat difficult to master the figure of eighth note triplets, because you are using a ternary figure and you have to place them accurately in a bar of 4-4. Here you have to make the effort to recite the notes so that you can place your strokes in the bar. Some students think that this kind of figure is not used, but nothing could be further from the truth. As you gain experience playing various styles of music with different groups you will find that it is used and that it often causes problems because musicians are not familiar with it
