Linear Patterns - Excercises utilizing three limbs sequentially. The fourth limb accompaniment is layered.

Regarding 75% linear drumming, each of 3 limb’s sound is sequential. The 4th limb adds a layered voice which accompanies the linear pattern. The order of execution and rhythmic duration greatly determine the net effect. These exercises encourage the exploration of all possible combinations of vertical, horizontal and cross-body limb interactions. Used as "warm-ups", these awaken the entire body and result in a great deal of coordination and control.
