- Start with bass drums playing the same part as snares to get their hands going before adding in the splits (can also be applied to quads if arounds prove challenging).
- Make sure everyone stays loose and relaxed and don’t “overplay”, especially on the individual strokes after a grouping – ie. Careful not to pound the left in R R R L
- The bass split in bar 6 is called a “laser”. These are hard for an inexperienced bass line so feel free to simplify if required. Same goes for 11, 12 and 13 which have 32nd note lasers.
- Start slow, and HAVE FUN!
