Time Manipulation - Section 1 - Basic Patterns

The exercises in Section 1 of Time Manipulation include most rhythmic figures made of eighth notes and sixteenth notes, and of their equivalent rests.
The exercises from Time Manipulation are pages made of 16 patterns, as can be seen in this example, which is taken from the first section.
  • I suggest to play the 16 patterns of the page in sequence, each measure being played twice.
  • You can work on separate patterns at first, but playing the patterns in sequence is what brings out the real strength of the exercices.
