In this video we’re going to discuss the basics of how to do both 6 over 5 and 6 over seven. In their most basic forms these are applied as sixteenth note triplets. We’re going to cover the phrasing and how to play them using different sticking patterns. This of course, is all in preparation for the next instalment where we apply these rhythms to the drum set! Make sure you get comfortable with these as we’re going to turn them into grooves 🙂
I’ve started experimenting with different lighting tricks and what not in my videos. If you like the white background effect, I was able to make this using only $50 worth of supplies (on top of my camera of course). Stay tuned soon for a how-to video on how I pulled this off!
The snare drum in this video is a Sonor SQ2 Maple Heavy with Golden Madrone both inside and out with black hardware. The bass is an 18×18 Sonor SQ2 Beech Vintage. The HiHats are Hammerax 18″ HellHats
As always, keep hitting things!
