Train

Technique by Kirby Jacobsen // June 12 2013
Train

Moving right along with my rudimental presentations, here is another personal hit entitled Train. Again, this is a rudiment that lends itself well for the drum set, when you substitute a foot (or two) for all the single strokes (i.e. the L in the first and third exercises and the R in the second and fourth exercises). Exercises 3 and 4 are cool because technically you’re simply playing three strokes on each hand with two of the three overlapping. 

Always start slow and play each exercise several times before proceeding to the next. Don’t forget to perform this and all rudimental exercises at soft, medium and loud volumes.

Have fun and remember to lock it in the pocket.
