Double Stroke Triplet Moving In Blocks Of 2

A double stroke triplet orchestration exercise where the voicing changes in line with the double stroke sticking.

This lessons follows on from our Standard Triplet Sticking lesson and is similar in content to our orchestrating this rudiment in Groups Of Three. It will be much easier to follow if you are familiar with the content from that lesson.

As with all rudiment exercises, orchestrating is an important step. In the exercises presented on this page you will learn six orchestrations for the double stroke triplet that all involve moving in groups of two. This means that on every second count you change voicing, in exactly the same way you did with this Double Stroke Roll Orchestration. The big difference here though is that you are now playing in a triplet timing, so the changing of voice won't line up with the beat..

Feet have been included in all exercises but only as quarter notes. For this orchestration concept it is acceptable to use the same drum twice within a bar as long as two groups aren't played on the same drum in a row. Remember to use the double stroke triplet sticking through each exercise.
