Flamacue Moving In Blocks Of Four

Changing the voicing of a flamacue every numbered count.

In this flamacue orchestration you will be moving the rudiment around the kit in various patterns that all involve changing the voicing on every numbered count. As I have discussed in lessons, orchestrating rudiments using grace notes is a bit different to other rudiments as it isn't totally roll based. I have added feet to each exercise also to increase the challenge. Feel free to remove the feet whilst you are learning the orchestration then adding them back in later. Experiment with using different feet patterns from our previous lessons and try different sticking variations also.
