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

 

Commentary:

Control of dynamics is fundamental in this exercise and you have to balance the volume of your snare, bass drum and HiHat. Try to find that balance and make it a matter of routine, so that you hear the volume of each element and can adjust any possible differencAs in the preceding exercise, using the second and third strokes of the quintuplet is fairly difficult, making it particularly important to recite all the figures. Be careful to recite the figures! This will give you control so that you do not deform the figure. Remember that there are five strokes per quarter note and that they all have the same value. My experience as a professional has shown me that mastering these figures will help you understand bars of odd time and placement of complex figures. Many people might think that exercises like this are unnecessary, but nothing could be farther from the truth. You are learning the language of rhythm and music is based on figures like these. Most of the students who have practised these exercises have found them to be practical and effective when playing different patternses. Remember that you are not always meant to accent the strong beats
