Solo 1 uses a 1 bar pattern. Solos 2-4 use a 2 bar pattern. The solos will be more impressive the faster you can play these patterns! However do not sacrifice control, even sticking and good dynamics for speed. Fast and messy is no good The dynamics are essential to making these solos sound good. Try to keep the unaccented strokes quiet and the accents just a little louder. Try not to lift the sticks more than 2 inches from the head of the drum. To make the accented strokes, simply lift the stick a little higher, perhaps 6-9inches from the head of the drum. Remember - accents don't need to be loud. They only need to be louder than the other strokes. Only £4.99. Amaze your friends with these amazing solos.
