R!Solo: Street Window for Drumset by Matthew Richmond

by Rhythm Scene Staff | Aug 01, 2017

Using very simple patterns in the hands, this solo for four-piece drumset puts most of the interesting rhythms in the feet, especially the hi-hat foot. One particular rhythmic theme (on the hi-hat in measures 5–8) is used in three different ways, including a retrograde version at the end. Avoid being intimidated by the dense-looking notation; most of the ideas are easier on the kit than they look on the page!
