So, as I write this, I’m still in “lockdown.” My wife and I fled NYC when the numbers started to get really scary and now I’m holed-up in a house on Cape Cod with no drums.
But, I DO have a pad and I’ve been using it. One of the things I decided to do was see if I could come up with a more musical approach to technique.
I always loved Wilcoxon’s books and I’m hoping to create some pieces that are technical, modern and musical.
And hence, here is “Stick Logic #4.”
It’s a short cadence based on the inverted paradiddle, but the twist is that it’s in 3/4.
Here’s a video of me playing it.
And, here is a PDF with the notation of what I’m playing, including the stickings: Stick Logic #4
Feel free to ask questions–just leave a comment.
Have fun and stay safe.
