In this video lesson, I want to show you the basic jazz ride pattern and we mentioned that we’re talking about counting in triplets so allow me to show, if you look at exercise number 1 in the sheet music. You’ll see that the ride cymbal is on beats 1, 2 the let of 2, beat three the four and the let of four those are the clappers for them up for you. It sounds like this.
Now I’m also going to put the high hat with the foot on beats 2 and 4. And if you’re not sure how to do that allow me to demonstrate.
Just simply by stepping down the pedal in time of course. And to learn to that with the jazz right patterns allow me to demonstrate.
In exercise number two all we going to do is, we’re going to snare drum to beats 2 and 4 to what we’ve already done in exercise 1. Allow mw to demonstrate.
Exercise three is just an elaboration of exercise number one. Now I’m playing the metronome at a hundred beats per minute. And all I’m going to do is add the base drum to the beats of 1 and 3 to what have I already demonstrated in exercise number 2, check this out.
In exercise number 4, we’re going to add the base drum to all 4 quarter notes. Now I would suggest when you’re practicing this, to play the base drum as soft as possible. You don’t want to be too powerful in this type of music with the base drum especially so let’s take this to the drum set and have fun.
In exercise number 5, the fun really begins because we’re adding a little bit more element of challenge to what we’re already done in the previous exercises. We’re going to play the basic ride pattern the high hat with the foot on 2 and 4, the snare drum on 2 and 4 and I’m going to add the base drum to the let of 1 and the let of 3. Practice these with a metronome, allow me to demonstrate.
I think you’re really enjoy exercising number 6, this one is really starting to sound exciting. Now we’re basically to play the basic ride pattern the high hat on 2 and 4 and we’ll going to add something new to this one.
Now if you look at the sheet music, you’ll see that we have the base drum on beats of 1 and on the let of 3 ok. And the snare drum is actually consistent on both parts of the bar, meaning it’s on the 2 and the let of 2 also on the 4 and the let of 4. So you’ll notice that when you’re playing this pattern it’s a consistent hand pattern. Just it’s the base drum part that’s a little bit come tricky but not that hard, allow me to demonstrate.
So this concludes the section on the basic jazz pattern, now I’m sure you learn something new and I hope you have fun with that. What if I suggest just try to listen to as many jazz albums as you can, listen as too many jazz as long as you can. When you go through this exercises start really slow, make sure that everything is clean and precise and work on speeding them up and have fun.
