Jazz Drummer’s Workshop
Part 6: Assorted Applications
by Steve Fidyk
Welcome to the final installment of our series on ways to interpret the classic Ted Reed book Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummer. The following applications can be used with any of the seventy-two repetitive one-measure examples from pages 29, 30, and 33–36; the thirty-two-measure rhythmic melodies from pages 37–44; the accented-8th-notes section that begins on page 46; and the accented-8th-note-triplets section that begins on page 52.
