Time Manipulation - Section 3 - Anticipations

Section 3 of Time Manipulation is meant to work on anticipations.
Snare-drum and bass-drum notes that are played accented right before a beat, when they are followed by a rest, can be considered as being an anticipation of that beat.
  • 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.
