On this page you will learn a new right hand accent movement for grooves in 9/8. This is going to involve playing a straight run of eighth notes with an accent on every third stroke. These accents fall directly before the main downbeats so are have a 'pre-emptory' effect. Several examples of this movement are shown below, use these parts as a basis for building your own grooves.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all grooves up to a tempo of at least 140bpm.
- Create further variations on these grooves.
- Apply these grooves to a phrased piece as either the 'A' or 'B' section. .
