In this lesson you will be revisiting double time grooves and switching them over to the time signature of 9/8. These grooves won't be too challenging until you hit the higher tempos but it would be beneficial to read the lesson linked at the bottom of the page as well as our Level 2 Foot Speed lesson. Listed below are a few 9/8 grooves that are played in double time using various concepts already explorted within this category of playing.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all grooves up to a tempo of at least 130bpm.
- Create your own variations on these patterns. Write as many down as possible.
- Use these patterns as part of a longer phrase.
- Experiment with flicking between 3/4 and 4/4 in double time.
