Three Way Jazz Coordination

THREE WAY JAZZ COORDINATION involves playing various rhythms between the snare & bass drum while keeping the Jazz ride ostinato going.This further develops a drummer's independence between the left hand on the snare drum and the right foot on the bass drum while still keeping the ostinato going on the Jazz ride and the hi-hat on 2 & 4.Start slowly at 70 bpm and raise the tempo as your ability and confidence increase.Only the bass and snare parts are shown here.

You're Ready to Move on When...

• You can play all of the exercises in this session at a reasonably bright tempo (120 bpm or faster) all the way through while still making it groove.Playing these exercises at this tempo is not a hard and fast rule; it's just a challenge.

Going Further

• For a full immersion in Jazz history there is no better source than to watch the PBS documentary Jazz:The Story of

America's Musicby Ken Burns.

• One of the most informative sites on the internet regarding folk arts is Folkstreams.net.It has several helpful streaming video documentaries on New Orleans Jazz. • Here are some great books that every drummer should have.

• Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummerby Jim Chapin

• The Drummer's Complete Vocabulary as Taught by Alan Dawsonby John Ramsay

• Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummerby Ted Reed (You'l need this book to work with the above book.) • The Art of Bop Drummingand Beyond Bop Drummingby John Riley

• Chart Reading Workbook for Drummersby Bobby Gabrielle

• Listen to some great Jazz drumming.Here’s a list of Jazz tunes every drummer should know.

• Check out the Oscar Peterson Trio with Herb Ellis,Ray Brown and Oscar.Many of the songs do not have drums on them, just guitar,bass,and piano which are perfect to play along and pracitice with.

• Get together with some friends and play through the Jazz repertoire in the Real Bookby Hal Leonard available from

Jamey Aebersold Jazz,Inc.at Aebersold.com.Jazz musicians refer to this as a FAKE BOOK and it contains basic charts of all the most played songs in that genre.These defining songs of Jazz are called STANDARDS.

SESSION 10 - Rudiments

Session 10 48 Rudiments

Rudiments

RUDIMENTS are the basic elements of drum technique–like scales would be for melodic instruments.Each rudiment has a name that describes in some way the motion it indicates.The following rudiments are grouped into families of similar rudiments with some overlapping between families.

Make rudiments part of your normal playing and practicing routine.Rudiments should be practiced every day for a couple of years,until you can get them to blaze a bit.Practice rudiments from slow to fast to increase the agility of the hands.It is better to play slow with grace and agility,than to play fast and sloppy.

Ruffs & Drags

RUFFS and DRAGS use two grace note taps before the main note.The RUFF is the single element of the grace notes and the main note.The DRAG is a combination of ruffs forming a rudiment.The lead hand alternates in the following rudiments.

Three Stroke RuffFour Stroke Ruff

Single DragDouble Drag

• Ruffs and Drags • Flams

• Paradiddles

• Swiss Rudiments

• Playing all the rudiments in a relaxed,fluid way. • Playing the rudiments with precision.

• Playing the rudiments with feeling and emotion.

• Applying rudiments to the drum set.

“I hope that young drummers understand that technical virtuosity should always go hand in hand with musicality and taste if they ever aspire to work in the real world.”

~ Antonio Sanchez,Grammy award winning Jazz drummer

Key Idea: Grace Notes

GRACE NOTES are small notes written before the main note and should be played as close as possible to the main note.

Flams

A FLAM uses one grace note tap before the main note.The single grace note is notated as a single eighth note with a slash through its stem.A flam is played by two sticks dropping together with one hitting slightly ahead of the other.

Key Idea: Accents in Rudiments

Play close attention to the accents given in the rudiments. The accent should be significantly louder than the body of the rudiment.The accents give each rudiment a unique rhythmic flavor that sets each apart from the others.

Paradiddles

A PARADIDDLE is a rudiment that combines alternating strokes with pairs of double strokes.The Moeller technique described in Session 12 is very helpful for playing paradiddles.

Paradiddle One set of alternating strokes followed by one pair of double strokes,lead hand alternates

Para Triplets Four note paradiddle played as triplets

Double Paradiddle Two sets of alternating strokes followed by one pair of double strokes
