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

 

Commentary:

It is somewhat difficult to master the figure of sextuplets, because you are using a ternary figure and you have to place them accurately in a bar of 4-4. Be careful with the strokes of each sextuplet that are not accentuated; remember that the strokes all have the same value. As in most of my exercises, I highly recommend that you make the effort to recite the notes so that you can place your strokes in the bar. Some students think that this kind of figure is not used, but nothing could be further from the truth. As you gain experience playing various styles of music with different groups you will find that it is used and that it often causes problems because musicians are not familiar with it.
