Semi Quaver Groupings - 1 e +

Continue learning new rhythm ideas with this grouping of four sixteenth notes with the fourth note removed.

This lesson continues developing the ideas presented in our previous Semi Quaver Groupings lessons. In the last grouping we are going to cover you are going to remove the fourth semi quaver of each grouping of four. Which will look like this:

The second semi quaver grouping

Again, the sticking for a single stroke roll is preserved, when we remove the fourth semi quaver we also remove a left hand stroke and play the next on the right again.

Like in the last exercise we can notate this without the rest:
