2-3/3-2 cascara pattern with HH on 2 and 4

  • Use a metronome. You did 120 bpm set to 8th notes. Keep pushing the tempo so you’re prepared for whatever speed the song is at

  • ALWAYS count out loud while playing

  • Drop your leg when you play the hi-hat instead of just using your ankle

2-3 cascara pattern (solo style)

  • Play 8th notes and accent 2-3 pattern on the snare (add in the hi-hat on 2 and 4 for this and all other versions)

  • Then play 8th notes and accent 2-3 pattern on the rack tom

  • Then alternate between one 2-3 pattern on the snare and the next 2-3 pattern on the rack tom

  • Then alternate between one MEASURE (so half the pattern) on the snare with the following MEASURE (second half of the pattern) on the rack tom

  • Then switch so you start with the first half on the rack tom and the second half on the snare

  • Finally, alternate each 2-3 accent between snare and rack tom

  • Repeat the same process using the floor tom instead of the rack tom (your left hand will play the rack tom instead of crossing over to the floor tom)
