It’s my birthday! I was going to use a free pass–I’ve decided that with each 100 days, we should be allowed five free pass days for important events–but then at 11:30pm, I was able to fit in about an hour of practice! I actually warmed up with four different tom exercises that had me moving around the kit at different speeds while incorporating the kick and hi-hat on the 1 and 3 in 4/4 timing.
I also worked on triplet patterns in 6/8 timing, which is a fun exercise in improvisation and works within various musical genres. Then, I played along to the band’s tracks again, attempting to cement the song structures in my head while being on vacation and away from my usual equipment. What are you working on? #dailypractice #improving
