Time Manipulation - Section 4 - Beat Displacements

Section 4 of Time Manipulation is meant to approach beat displacements in a simple and progressive way.
It includes three sets of seven exercises, and I feel they are one of the most interesting series of exercises in the book.
  • 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.
