Triple Stroke Roll With Quarter Note Feet

Adding quarter note feet ostinati to the triple stroke roll as eighth note triplets.

In this lesson you will be adding crotchet feet patterns underneath the triple stroke roll. The hands will all be played as eighth note triplets so the feet will fall in line with the start of each three note grouping.

The feet patterns in this lesson will be the same as those given in similar lessons for different rudiments. They are important to practice though as the co ordination and independence between limbs will be slightly different with each rudiment. Remember to use a metronome as much as possible and to work on the timing slowly before pushing the tempo to higher speeds.
