R!Solo: Treading Water for Drumset by Jamie Wind Whitmarsh

Jun 1, 2015, 00:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

“Treading Water” takes the performer through several variations on the same basic groove. It is designed to increase intensity with each phrase, and performers should take care to ensure that proper time is kept. There is a fair amount of left-foot coordination involved, as well as a bit of open-handed drumming. Performers may use measures 20–21 to write a customized fill to lead into measure 22.
