LESSON ASSIGNMENT

October 13th, 2018

Free Strokes

  • Looks great. Make sure that your finger tips are always in contact with the sticks (mainly for the LH) and that you don’t lead with your fingers

  • Metronome set to quarter notes at 40 bpm. 4 hits on RH/LH, 8 hits on RH/LH, 12 hits on RH/LH, 16 hits on RH/LH, 20 hits on RH/LH

Groove Freedom

  • Pp. 5, 6, and 7

  • Metronome  at 40-45 bpm to start, focus on relaxing your arms and your legs, embracing the space between notes so that you’re more accurate and lined up with the click.

  • Feel free to speed up if you feel ready

  • Continue past 7 if you get to that point

Essential Beats

  • w/ video

Sunday Bloody Sunday

  • Snare version: focus on controlled accents, where you catch the accent in order to play a tap on the next hit (it will still feel like a free stroke)

  • Hi-hat version: Focus on just using your wrists, like with free strokes. This will help you focus on free strokes and have an easier time speeding it up once you’re ready to

Grid

  • HH: #3     Snare: beat 2     Bass: Grid rhythms #1-18

  • Count 16th notes out loud

  • 40 bpm set to 16th notes

  • Repeat each one at least 4 times in a row

  • Continue on with HH: playing #4, #5, and #6 if you get that far
