Commentary:

Be particularly careful with this exercise. Using septuplets requires concentration to avoid deforming the figure, especially when you have to practise placing strokes within the figure. Pay attention! Even though this type of figure is not too well known, it is no less important than others. As usual, bear in mind that it forms part of the rhythmic language and practising it will help you to master other figures as well. I am sure that you will be surprised at times to discover that the multitude of rhythms that you use are the result of these combinations. All the time you dedicate to analysing them is well spent. You will eventually realise that in some sessions your task may consist merely of playing figures like these.
