Exercice from Total Update Vol.1
by André Mallau
Understand how an exercise is organised:
Total Update is a revolutionary drum book that put harmony and rhythm together !
A semitone is a 8th note and a tone a 4th note. So harmonic scales become rhythmic patterns ! Each scale becomes a new pattern !
Andre uses this concept to increase your drumming possibilities into afro-cuban music with the 4 limbs..
Play it on the ride cymbal, add a snare and drums pattern and a cowbell pattern with the left foot and then mix up everything in a different way.
And it will definitely develop your drumming accuracy and independence, you can believe me !
