Thanks! Love your playing man.

Hey Juan, this is cool. Donati used to do this a bit (except he had the left hand on his little firecracker snare).

I'd been planing to write a 3/16 hi-hat exercise too, except with just a regular 8th notes on the right hand (and the usual series of bass drum patterns).

This is more interesting, I'm going to practice it.

Thanks very much.

Awesome!!!! Would love to see what you were going to write! I'm sure it's very interesting! Yeah I've seen Virgil do the 3/16 pattern between his firecracker snare drum and he has some AMAZING overlapping ideas. Definitely someone that I really admire. He's just an alien lol.

These are great. Thanks. However, they are kicking my but. Even just getting the first one down that incorporated snare and bass is proving a challenge for me. I can get the ostinato going with just the snare but when I try to add the bass it falls apart. Any tips on how to work this up to speed?

Play the first two consecutive notes, rest one beat, play the first two consecutive notes, rest one beat. Play the first two consecutive notes, rest one beat.

Play the first three consecutive notes, rest one beat, play the first three consecutive notes, rest one beat.

Ad nauseum.

Hey everyone! I'm super stoked to see that people are working on this exercise! I still work on it as well to refine and clean it up. Here are a few suggestions when tackling these ideas: One method is to play the ostinato (except the bass drum part) and SING the bass part before you actually attempt to play it. If you're able to hear it most of the time you're able to play. You can also just break it down beat by beat or note by note then add on a 16th note note at a time. This will cause you learn the motions that are coming up next. Another method would be to play let's say the bass drum and the right hand part to see what the correlation is between each limb. You can do this with all the other limbs as well to fully understand how it all the parts work together. Hope that helps a little.

Finally, I will be holding numerous drum camps this summer and will be teaching these ideas and concepts. For further information go to www.carlitomendoza.com/drumcamps and I would LOVE to help you out with your musical journey. Hope this helps a little. Cheers and have an AWESOME day!!!!

Carlito
