The Ratamacue Played Once Per Drum

Changing the voicing of a ratamacue every numbered count.

In this ratamacue orchestration you will just be moving the straight rudiment around the kit in various patterns that all involve changing the voicing on every numbered count. 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.
