Ok…we are going to try something different for the month of February. Instead of a rudiment of the day, we are going to do a set of three rudiments for a week.
Do them at a moderate, steady pace but play them until you can do them perfectly for a minute or two (or as long as you want).
Also, if you find yourself wandering from the rudiment mid-rudiment, go with it. Remember what you did and write it down. Try to make a pattern out of it. Have it ready to pull out when your bandmates look at you and say, “Just play some beat.” Read more about 2014-02 rudiment set 01
