Default Re: Donny Gruendler here!

Hello Jungle,
I apologize for my tardy reply. I've been doing quite a bit of traveling this summer w/ Rhett Frazier Inc and I have been lax in my forum participation.

Although, I'm glad that you are enjoying my Time, Sound and Form exercises! Thus, I have attached a PDF from my Hudson Music "Private Lessons" Video that contains many of the BD patterns from the T,S and F video. There are:
-- (15) 16th based groupings formed on beats 1&3
-- (7) 16th based groupings formed on beats 2&4

Once you have worked through these - you can combine them into longer 4 beat phrases. I.e. Combining no. 1 (from beats 1&3) and (A) from beats 2 and 4. Altogether this forms the grouping of: 1-2e-3-4e. ** For those of you in D.World familiar - this combination of groupings is reminiscent of Mr. Gary Chaffee's Fat-Back methodology (from Time Functioning Patterns).

Should you need further clarification w/ these -- feel free to email me at donny (at) donny gruendler (dot) com.
