Cymbal Warmups

Posted: Thu Dec 08, 2011 4:06 pm



Here's how I have my cymbals warmup with the full battery:

8's - playing quarter notes they will execute a flat crash on 1 and hi-hat (hinge choke) on 2, 3, 4

Tap & Accent - playing quarter notes the will execute hi-hat on 1, 2, 3, 4 and a sizzle on the & of 4

Double Stroke - strength training for 8 counts each: set position, arms straight out to sides, arms straight out front, arms straight up, repeat

16th Note Timing - quarter note hi-hat during check patterns followed by a specific crash/effect type.


I try to hit every technique while also addressing timing and split parts. I would provide my exercises but then you wouldn't have the fun of creating your own 8)
