Simple, but it takes a bit of concentration. Lately I have been running through this every time I sit down at the set as it just takes a minute or two.

8 singles on the Right hand, followed by 8 singles on the left.

Then 7 and 7
6 and 6
Etc down to 1 and 1, then back up.

3 variations - all ghost notes, accented first note, and synchronized hands.

Here's the vid (on a Moongel pad so not much volume)


This was recommended by Peter Erskine at a masterclass I attended a couple of months ago.

Feedback welcome.

I've seen this from years ago.....it is pretty hard to keep an even dynamic and certainly to do at a good speed......
