jazz drumming #idea30 | 5 Beat Ideas


These are really just a few random ideas for 5 beat jazz drum comping patterns with jazz time.

Initially inspired by a section in Gavin Harrison's "Rhythmic Illusions", I want to apply similar ideas to uptempo playing, as well as breaking down the triplet ideas into more usable 2 and 4 bar phrases.

There is a rich seam of ideas here, and I've got some more 5 beat ideas to develop and post in the future, as well as some similar ideas around 7 beat ideas.

Hopefully you'll a few interesting ideas to inspire your own playing and rhythmic explorations.

As always the PDF contains some further exercises and developments. Get it for free below.
