What is Up, Everyone?! Welcome Back! Today Scott Breaks down an awesome idea that he saw Jairo Ubiano perform. The video is short, but it is jam packed with some great groove and soloing ideas that Scott decided to transcribe, learn, and teach YOU. You can find the transcription HERE
Key Points from today’s lesson:
- Learning this single pattern gives you a TON of micro phrases – Lots of Drumming Liquidity
- Movement between Snare Drum and Hi Hat – Faster Tempi Accuracy Issues and Solutions
- Fast and FUN!!! LOTS OF FUN! Seriously… It is FUN drumming!
This pattern can be quiet difficult at first because it is a long pattern to play, however, like most drum exercises; if you put in the practice time it will become apart of your musical vocabulary for the rest of your life. Another aspect that was challenging was the left hand and it moving between the snare drum and hi hat. You have to use the little whip or flick motion to hit the hi hats enough to make a sound. At the faster tempi, this can be a little tricky at first, but you can do it. Just go slow, methodical, and be PATIENT. Patience is the key with an exercise like this. It took me about 3 hours to get it memorized and at the tempo Jairo performed it at. THEN I had to spend more time learning how to use it in a musical setting. That is when I decided to break down smaller micro-phrases from it. The transcription will show you everything you need for the drum groove, and also the drum fills I found to be very exciting to play. So, if you want to have something fun to practice over the coming weeks, go with this linear sextuplet drum pattern!
