Warm-up: Spend 4 minutes playing triple beats and flam taps in time with “Tenderoni” by Chromeo.
Skill work: The name of the game is Hand Speed Rolls:
The priorities here are perfect rhythmic interpretation and immaculate tempo maintenance. Notice too that this roughly follows a 4-2-1 pattern, so spend more time on the 4’s and 2’s before tackling the 1’s, especially with the last variation. Tempo range is 100 – 160 bpm.
Challenge: Can you play variations 3 and 4 with singles on the triplets? What about playing variation 4 with accents on the 1/16th notes? Off the left? The possibilities are endless; be creative.
Post tempos, heights, and variations to comments.
