Bass Drum Co-ordination # 3
(Against Afro-Cuban Hand Patterns)
Back to Afro-Cuban Hand Pattern # 1.
Our final goal with these exercises is to
substitute this last Afro-Cuban hand pattern for the triplets we started
with. First, practice the hand pattern while tapping quarter notes with
both feet. NOTE!! This hand pattern
contains the same cow bell / cymbal bell pattern (on right hand)
as pattern # 1.
Afro-Cuban Hand Pattern # 2
- The ability to play open triplets or closed rolls against these
foot patterns should add a useful dimension to your fills and solos.
- Playing the Afro-Cuban hand patterns against the foot patterns
will produce some interesting polyrhythmic grooves.
