HiHat plays all quarter notes. Bar 2 – Left hand plays all quintuplets on cymbal (Cym). Right hand plays first and second strokes of quintuplet in second and fourth beats in the bar on snare (SN). Bass drum plays first and second strokes of quintuplet in first and third beats in the bar. HiHat plays all quarter notes.

 

Commentary:

Quintuplets are a mostly unfamiliar figure and placing this figure on the drumkit poses a series of problems. First of all, because of the displacement in this exercise and the difficulty of placing the first and second strokes of the quintuplet clearly. 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 rhythmic vocabulary and needs to be mastered. Remember that it will also help you later on to grasp bars of odd time and polyrhythms.
