This lessons follows on from our Single Stroke Seven With Each Hand On A Different Drum orchestration lesson and will be quite similar to This Lesson applying the same orchestration concept to the single stroke roll. It will be much easier to follow if you are familiar with the content from these lessons.
In this simple orchestration concept you will be moving around the kit, changing voice on any numbered count. Remember, you hands will always be playing a single stroke seven in all exercises on this page. I have included feet in all exercises, it may be worth removing them whilst you are learning the orchestration then adding them back in later. Experiment with using different feet patterns from our previous lessons. It is also work trying these orchestration ideas with all sticking and rhythmic variations of the rudiment.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all exercises up to a tempo of at least 120bpm.
- Create your own orchestrations using this concept.
- Use as many different feet patterns as you can think of with each exercise.
