Free strokes

  • 40 bpm set to quarter notes

  • 4 on the RH/4 on the LH, 8 on the RH/8 on the LH, 12 on the RH/12 on the LH, 16 on the RH/16 on the LH

Hand Speed doubles: goal is 70 bpm for 1 minute

  • You did 65 bpm today

Bass drum Foot Speed hand/foot alternating singles: goal is 80 bpm (set to 16th notes) for 1 minute

  • You’re right around 65 bpm. Get 65 feeling comfortable and then increase the speed. Count 16th notes out loud so that you can keep track of when to switch your hands and where to put the hi-hat

  • 16th notes split between your RH on the floor tom and bass drum for a measure, then your LH on the snare and bass drum for a measure

  • Left foot quarter notes on the hi-hat

  • Play free strokes with every hit

  • Play free strokes with your foot for every hit. Make sure you are anchored on your seat and your body isn’t leaning to compensate for your leg playing the bass drum

RLFF w/ stick control

  • 60-75-90 bpm set to 8th notes

  • Play quarter note HH w/ LF

  • Play accents on toms to create melodies- work on creating variations within your melodies

  • Stick Control #1-4, work on moving your hands around in different orchestrations to see how different they feel and to make sure you can maintain the pattern even when you’re hitting different parts of the kit

  • Think about free strokes vs controlled accents, depending on the sticking pattern
