Additive Phrasing #4


This exercise takes a simple "additive"phrasing sequence (groupings of 3,5,7,9,11,13,15) in the hands, and places the sequence over a couple different bass drum ostinatos (the quarter note pulse, and dotted eighth pulse).

After that, the sequence is moved to the bass drum, and the hands play a series of ostinato patterns by using various accents across the sixteenth note field (namely the downbeat, then the e's, the and's, then the uh's.)

This is a great little warm-up that can be a brain twister of sorts for sure. It will help with coordination, phrasing concepts, awareness of pulse, endurance, and concentration.
