Rock Grooves - "Developing a Groove™" Series

Theme from Mission: Impossible
- study flows for both the 5/4 and 8/4 grooves

The Groove:
These exercises assume the omnipresent "off eighths"
hi-hat ostinato. The motif, as well as quarter note and
eighth note figures are exploited fully on all other limbs.
This endeavor truly develops limb independence.

Fills:
These exercises assume the omnipresent "off eighths"
hi-hat ostinato. The motif is played by the kick.

Combined, the hat and kick play a 'layered" ostinato bed for fills.
The hands explore the various unary, binary, ternary and quaternary
subdivisions executed in single, double and triple strokes.
