This DOUBLE Finger Cymbal Practice session includes Volumes 1 & 2
This practice session drills 7 basic finger cymbal patterns in simple drills, at a moderately slow speed which is perfect for beginner finger cymbal-ers. The patterns are introduced, the beat is felt and kept by walking in place, which is of course optional. If you're getting the hang of things stationary, we also walk in a simple forward and backwards cycle.
If you're new or pretty new to finger cymbals, this one's for you. If you know the patterns and need a simple practice to reinforce them in you, this one's for you.
If you can already play the patterns listed below AND feel the beat with your feet, this would be great review, or head over to Volume 2.
Included patterns are:
Beledi or 3 1 3 1 3
3 5 5
3 3 7
3 7 3
Singles (full time, half time, quarter time, double time and 16th notes)
This practice session drills running 3's and 4's at a moderate pace, which is perfect for beginners.
Basic walking patterns (stepping in place, traveling forward and backwards, with step touch and traveling forward and backwards with step touch) are included and are set a two different speeds.
If you're working on playing 3's and 4's comfortably, this practice session is for you. If you can already play 3's and 4's with ease, this session will further develop your skills with the introduction of the foot patterns.
If you can comfortably walk with or travel with step touch and play 3's or 4's, this will provide an excellent practice session for maintaining your skills.
