Welcome

  • personal updates
  • my belief in Tally Ho
  • today's focus: Drill

Challenge Patterns

  • One bar at a time.
  • Start practicing with the first. Build on that with subsequent bars (one bar at a time) until full pattern is formed.
  • 16th note sticking (picture at bottom: written in red)
    • 1eau / 2eau / 3eau / 4eau = RLRL / RLRL / RLRL / RLRL
  • 8th note sticking (picture at bottom: written in orange)
    • 1-a- / 2-a- / 3-a- / 4-a- = R-L- / R-L- / R-L- / R-L-
  • The challenge patterns will have a mix of sticking. Sometimes the whole bar will be one certain sticking, while other bars will have a mixture of both.

  • Most people are right-handed so it's natural to rush the left hits (the less dominant hand). However, DO NOT RUSH. Raise the left hand higher so it'll have a longer distance to travel before the hit.
  • Play/loop the pattern with music.

  • Transition from 1st bar to the 2nd: The ending of the 1st bar is the same as the beginning of the 2nd bar. Blur the transition by playing the "4-a-" as if it's part of the 2nd bar.
  • 1st bar: Don't rush the last two "a"s (2nd and 4th count).
  • Play/loop the pattern with music.
