Hot Licks Throwback: Two-Mallet Exercises by Dick Sisto (December 2001 Percussive Notes)

Feb 17, 2020, 06:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

These two-mallet exercises are inspired by the work of vibraphone great Bobby Hutcherson. They should be played in all 12 keys using a variety of scale qualities (major, minor, diminished, etc.). Exercises A and B are normally played only in an ascending fashion. Exercise C may be adapted to other styles of music by changing the triplet subdivisions to eighth notes. Each exercise should be played using a legato articulation.
