Reply Stephen says: May 24, 2018 at 3:02 pm Hey Ray…you will probably need to save it as a link (in your phone browser). Phones don’t download PDF’s unless you have an app that handles that sort of thing. There are some available. Reply ignacio says: May 24, 2018 at 11:54 pm good morning,,perfect to my routine,,,thanks fro spain Reply Stephen says: May 28, 2018 at 4:47 pm You bet…so glad it helped! Reply Mario Dumitrescu says: May 25, 2018 at 1:56 pm Thank you so much Stephen … again. For me it was quite a pleasant surprise . Believe it or not I am using the exercise 2 as a warm up , not knowing , or not thinking about what it is exactly ..But I am playing it only with the accent on the right hand.( it makes sense as my left hand is weaker ) Now with the sheet music it’s all clear to me . It’s the same process as for learning the accented sextuplets ( I am now very familiar with even at high speed….thanks to you !!! ) Reply Stephen says: May 28, 2018 at 4:47 pm You bet Mario…so glad it helped Reply Ben Gibson says: June 10, 2018 at 2:15 pm I can do the patterns with each of my hands. The problem is alternating them together so they “mesh” in an open stroke roll. I’ve worked on this for quite a while. Any suggestions? I wish you had slowly demonstrated this. Anyway, thanks so much for the lesson! Reply Stephen says: June 11, 2018 at 4:06 pm You actually hinted at it…there’s no way around it. You have to go super slow. For a long time. Focus on giving the proper timing in between the notes. The speed will come soon enough. Reply Sharma says: August 26, 2019 at 9:28 pm make the strokes bigger and more animated slowly then after an hour or something like that they meshed ! Reply Stephen says: August 27, 2019 at 9:22 am There it is! I love it Reply Jean-yves BEAUREGARD says: June 18, 2018 at 12:08 pm Sorry for my poor english, I’m french, it’s difficult when it’s not your mother tonge….I like the way you explain the exercises and I’m interess to have one who is really efficient Reply Stephen says: June 18, 2018 at 3:39 pm So glad it helped! Reply Owen says: August 12, 2018 at 1:08 am Hello Stephen, I need to find out why printouts you make available, often printout with an 8 section coloured circle covering most of it (with DRUM BETTER DAILY on it) I have followed your instructions – clicked here – it says I am logged in as Owen then I go to the Print music box & click – then it comes up and whether I print from your embedded button or the generic one it stuffs up in the printout. I know it is a protection measure, but I have paid and am logged in. What gives ?????? regards Owen Reply Stephen says: August 16, 2018 at 11:42 am Hey Owen, it’s not a protective issue. It’s settings on your device that need to be adjusted. If you are still having issues, email me directly and I can connect you with Tim on our team. He can get everything straightened out for you! Here is a video that will walk you through it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k68c2qwmig759ze/pdf%20print%20fix.mp4?dl=0 Reply Owen Brown says: August 13, 2018 at 12:34 am Hi Mate – still don’t know what causes the over printing I mention above – but – I have just printed out on a big grunt-do-anything computer & it printed out ok. ??? Cheers Owen Reply Stephen says: August 16, 2018 at 11:51 am Hey Owen…I responded with a fix in your last message. If you continue having issues, email me directly and I will put you in contact with Tim on our team. Reply Danny Maes says: March 24, 2019 at 6:35 am Excellent exercise but your explanation is great too! Very useful for me and on the right moment. Thanks a lot, Stephen and keep up the good work ! Greetings from Tienen, Belgium. Danny D.P. Reply Stephen says: March 28, 2019 at 4:13 pm Thanks Danny! So glad it was clear for you!

Reply Stephen says: September 10, 2019 at 6:43 am Glad to hear it George! Reply John Fergerson says: July 31, 2020 at 8:14 am I can’t seem to get my brain to accept doing the doubles/triples/etc. in tandem. It’s like my hands don’t want to be rude to each other and wait for the other to finish before starting. Any suggestions on getting over this mental block? Reply Stephen says: July 31, 2020 at 3:24 pm This actually takes quite a while to master. The interlacing of the hands. I have a whole lesson on that with exercises in the hand technique course for this specific reason. Slow it down. It usually tells me that the motions have not been learned well enough and the brain is struggling to do the new motions PLUS interlace the hands.
