The fill concept discussed in this lesson takes the single stroke four applied in the time signature of 6/8 then moves it around the kit, switching voice on every occurance of the rudiment. For these exercises you will use the version of the rudiment that starts on the beat. When played in this time signature, the rudiment has a slightly syncopated feel the start of each block doesn't fall in line with the naturak accents of the bar. This basically means it sounds a little bit cooler!
A similar idea has been covered in our rudiment orchestration lessons so this should hopefully be quite straight forward. Remember to take your time and make sure your timing and sticking is accurate before trying to up the tempo.
- Learn each given fill to a tempo of 140bpm.
- Come up with as many different orchestrations as you can think of.
- Apply the fill with groove in a structured pattern.
