the ballad

zip pdf

   The ballad is played in a slow to very slow tempo, I choose to illustrate ballad with a 16th note groove on the hi-hat played by only the right hand, see lesson #13. In exercise #2 the sidestick sound is preferred to the snare drum sound to lightenth the backbeats (2&4). In exercises #3 and #4 the bass drum is anticipating the downbeats (1&3) giving more depth to the pattern.

EXERCISE #1

   Tempo = 64bpm ; count in = 123+4+
