What is a Cross Rhythm?
A polyrhythm occurs when two or more rhythms from different meters are used simultaneously. On the drum kit, a cross rhythm takes this one step further by layering grooves from different meters simultaneously, using the same subdivision.
Creativity with Cross Rhythms sets out a group of exercises that trains your ear and hands to hear and play odd groupings in common grooves. They are designed to develop your four-way coordination, increase your rhythmic awareness and security, and strengthen your sense of time.
The eBook features warmups, exercises, and musical applications accompanied by slow, medium, and fast practice backing tracks. There are video demonstrations of all material shot at multiple angles, and you’ll learn how to play 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8-note groupings in shuffle, rock, and swing grooves.
