Here in “Nasty Lick #86,” we’re messing around with an idea that is 14 notes long, and the metric we’re working with is 16th note triplets.The 14 note pattern (consisting of one paradiddle-diddle, two bass drum notes, and three notes each on the floor tom and hi tom) makes this idea sound pretty “out-there.” In fact, once you’ve mastered it, use it with care. It’s most appropriate for soloing or drum breaks.
