In this lesson we will look at some popular
patterns of 9 we can play within triplets, in a jazz feel. The
following 2 phrases both consist of 9 triplets each (3 beats worth
of 3 triplets each), but are played within 4/4 time. This means the
phrase falls over the barline.
Here is the sticking for the first pattern, between the RH on ride cymbal and LH on snare drum..
f we play this 3 beat pattern repetitively over 4/4 time, we get this interesting phrasing over the bar line..
Notice that the pattern starts again after exactly 3 bars.. How many beats long is the fill? 3. That's no coincidence. The notes in blue above indicate where in the bar the pattern starts again.
