    I like the new metronome, it’s pretty helpful

    • mildlyconfundeled
    • July 23, 2012

    I enjoyed that metronome almost as much as I enjoyed the lesson

    • 123method

    Love the metric modulation lessons. It could also become a really great
    skill and practice tool to be able to slow parts down without loosing the
    metronome

    Great lesson man! Sqeezing those 5’s in is difficult!

    This is absolutely horrible! Quint paradiddle groove? Why would you create
    such a monster?! I have no words. Killer playing though… I can’t touch
    this yet, haha. Oh, and nice foot cam 😉

  1. [..YouTube..] The lighting seems darker, still great lesson.

  2. [..YouTube..] If you were kidding then just ignore this, but groups of 4 (or I guess 8) as quintuplets and other things like that are great ideas and once you open the door to metric modulation and polyrhythms it’s a whole new world of drumming. Depending on what kind of gig you’re playing, it may get you fired though.. ;]

  9. [..YouTube..] what about keeping true quarter notes on the bass instead of slowing or speeding to match the “downbeat” of the parradiddle? that might be a little more challenging and help work on independence.

  18. [..YouTube..] Thanks! It’s just practice, practice and more practice 😛 You can try it all on one sound source without the accents as a step towards as well!

  20. [..YouTube..] Thanks man! The lighting was the same, I just put a vignette on it (cause the foot cam failed anyway) and this preset called “combat” in FCPX

  21. [..YouTube..] haha thanks! I always like changing stuff up and not doing stuff conventionally. Not that I totally invented this or anything, by any stretch of the imagination

  22. [..YouTube..] Thanks man! Well, I haven’t been practicing (I know, BAD drummer). Maybe I’m just cutting better takes 😉

  23. [..YouTube..] Totally another option man! I’m doing it this way to imply speeding up and slowing down of the grooves as an implied metric modulation. With quarter note kick anchor, it makes it way easier for people to follow, which is rad too! I’m doing the straight quarters on my hihat foot at some point in here if I remember right as well! Definitely worth working on both ways!

    Great lesson! At the moment im working on some paradiddle grooves. And its really amazing with what kind of grooves you can come up.
    Could you just explain the Quintaplets in one of your next videos? Sounds pretty interesting.

    Thanks!

    • aaronedgardrum
    • May 13, 2013

    Ya man totally! I definitely have a bunch of quintuplet videos. I think I even do some specifically on paradiddles in quintuplets. 😀

    • fuzzylogiceire
    • April 23, 2014

    How do the paradiddles in quintuplets work? I feel you should have
    explained this better.
