A very simple variation on the standard 'AAAB' pattern that is cut a little shorter.
In this lesson you will just be taking the AAB pattern covered in a previous lesson (linked below) and translating it to the time signature of 6/8. All exercises will just be this new combination of existing ideas so shouldn't present too many problems. The structure for the parts on this page is this:
In the original lesson on this structure I discuss where you might find this kind of phrase and some points about notation in a piece, have a look back over that lesson if you haven't already as these notes may be useful.
Listed below are several example of this structure with a drum kit part applied. I have used a variety of different construction ideas but feel free to create your own parts.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all phrases up to a tempo of at least 130bpm.
- Create your own versions of these patterns based on the original phrase.
