Swiss Army Triplet With Minim Feet

Adding mini note feet ostinatos to the swiss army triplet as eighth note triplets.

In this lesson you will be adding minim feet patterns underneath the swiss army triplet. The hands will all be played as eighth note triplets so the feet will fall inline with the first and third hands playing in unison.

The feet patterns in this lesson will be the same as those given in similar lessons for different rudiments. They are important to practice though as the co ordination and independence between limbs will be slightly different with each rudiment. Remember to use a metronome as much as possible and to work on the timing slowly before pushing the tempo to higher speeds.

Treat these exercises as a gentle introduction to adding feet under this complex rudimet.
