Ride Cymbal Displacement

Here is and exercise of jazz ride pattern displacement. Instead of playing the pattern on the beat, Ari plays on the third or the second triplet of the beat.

You’ll also find an example of bass line to fit with the ride cymbal. The feeling is really strong when you come back to the regular time.

Don’t forget to sing the main melody and to use a metronome when working on your own.
