THE CELLULAR PRACTICE CONCEPT
If you missed our introductory post for this practice concept, be sure to read through it here. This variation of sequence is based on traditional gridding and is structured as the following: AAAA, BAAA, ABAA , AABA, AAAB, BBAA, ABBA, AABB, BAAB, BBBA, ABBB, BABB, BBAB, BBBB. It’s a good idea to repeat each part of the sequence as needed before moving on to the next. SYNKD’s proprietary ‘Bar Isolation” function comes in handy here.
Flammed Mills & 6-Stroke Rolls Exercise
This exercise is sure to keep you on your toes. Some flams, some double strokes, and some accents combined with changing subdivisions make for a fun rudimental challenge featuring Flammed Mills and 6-Stroke rolls. As always, take this slow at first to ensure rhythmic accuracy and correct stickings. Be mindful of technique with stick heights and appropriate strokes given the context. If this is proving to be difficult, we recommend selecting measures at a time via the SYNKD "Bar Isolation" feature in order to practice each part of the sequence and then slowly build the context by adding more measures.
