Commentary:

Placing the third and fourth strokes of the quintuplet involves some difficulty. All the exercises of this type will help you to master each of the figures in the progressions. I recommend that you do not neglect these figures because, besides forming part of the language of music, they will help you to control the other figures much better. First of all, because of the displacement in this exercise and the difficulty of placing the third and fourth strokes of the quintuplet clearly, since it is a combination that is not often used in our popular music styles, but as with the rest of the exercises, they form part of the rhythmic vocabulary and need to be mastered. Remember that they will also help you later on to grasp bars of odd time and polyrhythms
