In this lesson you will be expanding on the exercises learned in our Eighth Note Fills In A 6/8 'A B' Pattern by switching the eighth note fills to sixteenth note fills. The intention here is to further improve your ability to use fills in the time signature of 6/8. As before, the important thing here is to repeat the four bar phrases over and over, preferably with a metronome, until you can play the part several times without any breaks in timing. I have provided various lengths of fill to mix things up.
These exercises will be far easier if you have worked through our 6/8 Grooves, 6/8 Fills and Eighth Note Fills In A 6/8 'A B' Pattern lessons.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all phrases up to a tempo of at least 135bpm.
- Create your own versions of these patterns.
