Time Manipulation - Section 5 - Basic & Polyrhythmic 12/8 Patterns

Section 5 from Time Manipulation Drum Book is in 12/8, and will let you work on both basic and polyrhythmic patterns.
This example shows Exercise 58, which is an application of the "3 over 2" polyrhythm. Additionally it sounds good!
  • 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.
