Combining triplets and straight sixteenths

Back to Fills In Time - Improve Time-feel and Drum Fills in 15 Quick Lessons

Having the ability to play a variety of rhythms with confidence and musicality can add depth and character to a musician. Understanding the change in meter between quadruple time and triple time is an essential part of this. Great drummers such as Tony Williams and John Bonham knew that getting 'inside the time' was a way to inject elements of musical tension and release - using elementary aspects such as triplets in the place of straight semi­quavers is a very usable way to do this. In this lesson, we will look at mixing straight eighth- and sixteenth-notes with sextuplets.
