On this page you will learn a new right hand rhythm for grooves in 9/8. This is going to involve playing a straight run of dotted eighth notes which creates an interesting syncopated sound. Not having the eighth notes to latch the kicks and snares to can make these parts slightly more difficult to learn. Add counting if you feel it will help and slow the parts right down before building up tempo.
Use the given parts as a basis for building your own grooves. Trying messing around with the rhythm and orchestration.
- 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. .
