Single Stroke 5 Orchestrated In A Triangle Pattern

A simple orchestration of the rudiment in its 'standard timing' where each numbered count is orchestrated.

In this lesson you will be taking the Single Stroke 5 in its standard 'on the beat' form applying the triangle orchestration previously applied to the single stroke roll. Links to this lesson and others you may find useful can be found at the bottom of the page.

Listed below are a selection of orchestrations for this idea. Because of the grouping of the rudiment there are limited combinations. Learn those given then have a go at coming up with some of your own.
