I really like you lessons and I follow all your advice …to bad was not 20 years ago!!! You are the best teacher Rich McKenna says: August 14, 2016 at 9:05 am Very nice! This is a good exercise to use as a warm-up. Once mastered, it will become part of my ever-expanding vocabulary to use whenever I want it. Thanks Stephen!

I think the fifth note was to stretch into the second bar while the feet maintained the samba ostinato. I never mastered that. However, the sticking is very comfortable. It resembles a favorite sextuplet patter for jazz ride. I find the quintuplets very interesting and useful. I often play and orchestrate a 5-5-6 fill. The final note has great possibilities to introduce the next measure. I like to incorporate this into 32 note improvisation as well. With regard to stick use: now that I have moved to a better bounce technique, cymbal crashes seem to eat the sticks more than rim shots. For months, I have been playing the same pair of Vic Firth Steve Gadd model (no hero worship here – just more comfortable than the VF sd4 combos I have played for years). The shoulders are worn (black paint going) but the beads are as good as new. I use wooden beads. These beads have yet to flatten out. Stephen says: August 15, 2016 at 7:34 am I use this sticking a lot in my playing…as well as several others. And yea, I probably did use it in a samba exercise. Most drummers you see will use the same sticking’s repeatedly, but in a variety of ways. I haven’t tried the Gadd model of sticks. I need to check them out! Andrew says: August 15, 2016 at 12:30 pm Depends. Some shows I give my sticks away at the end. Fans kind a like that ???? Normally, with regular practices, a couple weeks. I don’t play metal ???? Thanks for the lesson. And the sheet music.
