    Default Coordination Exercises

    Hello! Umm, I'm getting better at a nice rate but the one thing I'm not practicing is my coordination and I feel like i lack a lot in that area. Do you know some exercises on the drum set I can do to improve my 4-way coordination? Or even 3 way coordination.

    Lol thanks for reminding me of that! I thought about doing that but I was wondering if there was a simpler few exercises I could just do. I'll check out that video though. If not, I'll go back to the book haha. Thanks man.

    There are a lot of things that you can do to exercise coordination on the drumset...and not a one of them is easy. But, they can be learned one step at a time and one lesson at a time.
    There's a lot to be said for Time Honored tradition and value.

    I have a decent little coodiantion exersize.
    Start with a stable pulse of single stokes with the feet. Thatt play all kinds of different things over it. Start with all the usual subdivions with singles on the hands. 4ths 8th 12ths 16ths 32s and so on. Than move on and do the same thing with doubles. When youve gotten really comtorble with that you can try all kinds of different rudiments over it. And to sipce it up you can play different foot patterns os move the pulse to the hands and do different patters with the feet.
    Hope that helps some of you, and if you don't understand my fuzzy way of explaining just ask and ill try to explain better.
