    As an adult student this book has been very helpful to me with my drumming. I have had my book over 25 years because I play conga as well and used stick control as hand exercises for conga. I practice it slowly to get the sticking down then increase the speed until it breaks up so I back it down to the highest speed I can comfortably play. I do each line of the first three pages for about a minute each.

    I looked at that book once, decided it would make me nuts, put it back on the shelf.

    Drumming is mainly single stroke and double strokes. When I get behind my set, I'll play with just the left hand and the BD, then switch hands.

    After that, I'll just take rudiments and mess with them. RLRRLRLL (SIMPLE PARADIDDLE) get's turned into RLRRLRLLRLLRLLRLLLRLRLLRLLRLLRRR.

    You don't have to do this ^^^ sticking, just start with a paradiddle and when you feel like it, change the sticking to a double or single stroke roll, back to a paradiddle and maybe some sticking like ^^^^^. If the sticking makes you uncomfortable playing it, that's what it's supposed to do. I change things around on the snare a lot. For decades it kept me sharp.

Does anyone have a video or audio track that demonstrates the flow of these patterns? I just think I cannot hear the routine, so trying to play it makes cacophony.

    Go slow like 60 bpm or even slower and say the phrases out loud as you play them. 1 E & Ah, 2 E & AH, 3 Trip let, 4 Trip let. etc etc. Try to think about accenting the 1st beat, when accenting 16th notes the accent is on the same hand on every beat (depending on which hand you start with) and when accenting triplets the accent changes from right to left on every beat.

    Hope that makes sense.
