Jazz:Limb Independence Exercises for Drums
( Part 2)
After you master this, take the idea and modify it. For example, try playing: "snare, high-hat, bass drum" instead of "high-hat, bass drum, snare".
This pattern would be comfortable if you were playing them as straight 16ths, but playing double strokes over a triplet feel can be frustration if you haven't done it before. When you get comfortable, play the high-hat with your foot of 2 and 4 as shown.
BONUS: Here is a bit of messing around that Rich did while the tape was still rolling. Here does the above exercise, accelerates it, and moves it around the kit. This will give you an idea of how you can use some creativity in your practice:
Paradiddles between your bass drum and snare, in triplets! Have fun with this one. An extension of this could be accenting each quarter note as you play. Also try starting at different parts of the paradiddle like you would when practicing paradiddles with your hands.
