- Work them individually on drums. Gradually and cleanly
work up to speed.
- Mix them up. Use your imagination! Start by playing A and B back to back.
- Move these around to all drums and cymbals left to right, etc.
- Practice "continuous flow". Keep triplets going the whole time even while
pausing between exercises.
- Try all examples with left foot on high hat or left bass drum pedal.
- Mix doubles with singles, odd groupings, etc. as you
play them around the drums.
