Rhythmic Exploration in 12/8 and 3/4

Would you like to progress in your ability to play fills and solos? Here are a few patterns from a new – not yet published – drum book.

The exercises can be practiced on a simple pad or on the drums. They will provide hours of rhythmic exploration!

In this video, I play two exercises:
  1. The first one is in 12/8.
  2. The second one is the transposition in 3/4 of the first one.
The tempo is 120 BPM, and I play each pattern twice.
  • I suggest practicing much slower at first (around 40 BPM), in separate patterns and counting out loud.
  • The more you know the two exercises, the easier it will be to tackle the rest of the book which is really intense! Learn them by heart!

These exercises can be practiced with my innovative Pattern Morphing concept.
