This week's lesson marks a departure from my usual material. I've actually created a Rudmental Ritual for you guys. But I want you to remember two things:
- All of this assumes you can play the stuff cleanly. It's all wasted time if you can't. If you're new and want to fine-hone your ability to make sure your "personal drum troupe" is locking up, check out my premium materials like the roadmap and the coaching course, or my free ones like the Gospel video for a primer. If you're currently enrolled in the coaching course, you can add a few of these as "extra credit" to the rudimental portion of your week's routine. (Folks who have asked me for odd meter stuff, you know who you are:)
- As soon as possible, you should orchestrate and improvise with this stuff, otherwise it's just moving your hands, and you're the drum equivalent to the guy at the gym doing the same weight he did last week on the bench that he only lowers 3 inches after he says "spot me brah."
OK - soapbox over. Enjoy it!
