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


  • 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
