"A combination of single stroke rolls in '7, '5' and
'3' in 4/4. Accenting the first note of each group is optional. On a drum you can play the
accent as a rimshot."

"Marching with the ruffs. Mix this exercise up by switching the leading hand each bar. Take it to the kit and add a bass
drum & crash to the 8th/4th notes."

"Singles work out in 5'S and 3'S over 2 bars. This symmetrical
exercise is notated as 32nd notes in 4/4. The first note of each grouping can be accented for more of a challenge."
WARM-UP 31 MP3
"Triple strokes in 12/8 combining with three
single strokes at the end to complete the bar. The purpose of this exercise is to get comfortable with the switch from multiple bounce
to hand-to-hand sticking. Stop, switch hands."
WARM-UP 32 MP3
"Inverted doubles in 5/8. You don't need to count this
warm-up to a metronome at higher tempos, just get the feel of the sticking in your hands,
from memory, and let it flole
WARM-UP 33 MP3
"Pull-out accents on the off-beat in 12/8. This is a trickier
example as the accents do not land on the down beats of the bar."
WARM-UP 34 MP3
"Last of the snapadiddle inversions. The
'snap' lands on the `a' of each beat. Try not to accent the last beat of each 3-note snap. Switch
hands, start again."
WARM-UP 35 MP3
"A nice symmetrical pattern involving 7's and 3's. Keep the four strokes in each leading hand at the same volume."
