WARM-UP   10

"Triple strokes combining with snaps. This exercise is in 12/8. There is no need to play accents here, just focus on accurate placement of the additional note in each three note grouping."

"Introduction to (pull-out' accents. Pull-out accents are great for increasing lower arm control and power. See the introduction section for further explanation. I would recommend staying on a low tempo with this exercise for as long as possible. Perfecting the transition from tap to down stroke accent is the key and only comes with repetition."

"Consecutive flams. Here we delay a regular flam accent by two 8th notes in order to create a more difficult exercise. This pattern is not symmetrical so be sure to reverse the sticking."

"This warm-up is called 'The Mixer'. Based on 'the ruff' or the `single stroke four', this is a hand-to-hand exercise in 12/8. Adding accents to each 8th note is optional so be awàre of what is more difficult for you to play and work on it."

"A symmetrical phrase demonstrated with rimshots on the audio example. This is a good one to play out for 3-5 minutes in a relaxed state."

WARM-UP   15

"Single strokes in 12/8 that resolve to switch hands every other beat. This exercise is a progression from the earlier triple stroke patterns. Treat it in the same way and aim for three even strokes in each leading hand. The extra 16ths can be added in later."

"Inverting the Snapadiddle.Start with a regular inverted paradiddle first to get a steady flow - a double stroke followed by two singles played straight as 8th notes. Next add the extra note between each double stroke."

"Transitioning triple strokes with doubles. Consistent stick height will lead to consistent volume. Try to keep the notes as even as possible and the tempo steady. A great warm-up for loosening fingers."

WARM-UP   18

"A mix of some 'Swiss Army Triplets' and a Tim Tap' to create a warm-up in 11/8. Three groups of three and one group of two makes the eleven. Aim for full sounding flams - not 'flat' or in unison."
