Following up on last week’s post, I’ve stumbled on another idea that goes a little deeper. Let’s start by showing you a video of me playing the new idea. I play it twice in the clip. By the way, the click is audible during the video with the high pitched beep set as the “1” of each 4/4 measure. The idea goes over the bar line, so the click should help make it clear where the “one” is.
One of the things I love about double stroke rolls is that they make it easy to insert accents where ever you wish. Using that notion, I came up with a variation on the ideas from the last post. The attached worksheet breaks down the lick in three steps:
- the underlying rhythm of the idea is shown
- the sticking of the lick (with out the doubles) is given
- the full lick exactly as played is written
I found it helpful to look at the lick in these three ways as I started working on it. Hopefully these steps will be useful for you as well. Below is the full lick’s rhythmic notation.
Here is a PDF of worksheet with all the details so you can take it into the practice room: Nasty Lick #62A
