Description

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

 

Commentary:

Placing this stroke clearly is not easy. As a rule, both the fifth and second strokes of the quintuplet are the most difficult ones to control owing to their proximity to the beat. Be careful not to deform the figure. 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 patterns.
