Thumb exercise

Free Strokes at 40 bpm set to quarter notes

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

RH accented singles

  • Slight departure from Faster Hands system

  • Start at 93 bpm set to 16th notes and make sure you can play it in absolutely perfect time for 1 minute

  • Slowly increase the tempo after you’ve mastered the one you’re on

  • Goal is to try to be a little faster every day, even if it’s just 1 bpm’s worth

  • Don’t lie to yourself, if you aren’t perfectly in time, don’t speed the speed up

Bop Drumming p.22

  • Go SLOW. It’d probably be a good idea to go slower than you think you need to. If there are consistent mistakes, slow it down and fix them

Bass doubles exercise

  • RLFF with left foot HH quarter notes

  • Make sure your hands are playing free strokes

  • Make sure both bass drums are strong and consistent

  • Take the next two weeks to get comfortable with it. When I’m back we’ll find your max tempo and start on the Faster Hands system with it

  • Use a metronome to help determine where you’re at
