Commentary:

In these exercises you are starting to use the rhythmic language of the drumkit to build patterns with the different figures of the progressions, in this case eighth note triplets. 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. It is a mistake to think that reading triplets and seeing them as “simple figures” means that they are not worth the same degree of attention. You will eventually realise that in some sessions your task may consist merely of playing figures like these.
