Find The Gap

Technique

I love this warm-up, and it's a natural extension to the 8 On A Hand warm-up from last month. If you want to develop the ability to play 16th notes effortlessly around the kit this is the perfect place to start! This time we are developing what is called a "lead hand" motion, as well as beginning to coordinate differing right and left hand timings. All three exercise use the same rhythm, however we change the sticking each time.

Share a video of yourself playing it on the Drumadiddle Facebook page with the tag #WarmupWednesday. What speed can you play this exercise? Leave a comment below telling us how you're getting on!
