Single Stroke 5 With '+' Count Accents

Learn some simple single accent placements within a 16th note single stroke five.

In this lesson you will be applying accents on various offbeat eighth note counts in a single stroke 5. Remember, an accented note is played slightly louder so it stands out from all the other notes. The symbol for an accent is the '<' sign above the note and accents are identified in the sticking with a capital letter.

In each exercise multiple sticking variations are given for sticking meaning some accents fall on the right and some on the left. Whichever hand you use, the volume of each accent should be the same. The two common rhythmic variants are also given.
