I am currently working with john ramsay's book "the drummer's complete vocabulary",

in which he passes down alan dawson's teaching method.

there is a section in the book which deals with various ways in which you can play exercises

from ted reed's book "syncopation".

one of the ways is to read "syncopation" while playing and humming odd time jazz tunes,

but he forgets to mention how do you actually read the 4/4 exercises while you are playing

odd time.

this is driving me crazy...

anyway, if anyone is familiar with the book and this part of it, any help would be appreciated.

thanks.
