A variation of the right hand in 3/4 grooves.

On this page you will be applying the One Handed 16th Note Right Hand concept learned previously in level 2 within the time signature of 3/4. The basic idea shouldn't prove too much of a challenge but getting the grooves up to higher tempos with that constant right hand is real push on your stamina. At the bottom of the page I have listed a few lessons you may find useful when learning these parts.

Listed below are several examples of 3/4 grooves using this right hand idea. As always, use this as a starting point for creating your own grooves based on the concept.
