I'm having trouble with Ninelets

Posted: Sat Aug 08, 2015 11:19 am



So I'm in the drumline, I play tenors. I have a lot of ninelets in my song and the stick is RLLRLLRLLRLLRLLRLL. The 2 ninelets are put together. So I've been counting and counting but when i finish my ninelets, I always end on count 4 even with the next downbeat. (The measure is 4/4) Doesn't this mean 1 ninelet is 2 counts? Am I playing too fast? The tempo is 140.

Help would be great. Thanks.

Play a full measure of quarter note triplets all on the right hand then add in the left hand fiddles evenly in between the right hands.

Yeah, it is just a triplet placed on each quarter note in a quarter note triplet. Quarter note triplets should be subdivided in 1/8 note triplets anyway to help prevent rushing or dragging. You want to be spot on so don't get too excited they are coming. Sit on (wait on) them a little. They are slower than sixtuplets.

Try this a few times:
1. Play a string of 8th note triplets.
2. Count them 2X's through 123456 123456
3. The next 2 times identify the quarter note triplet and lock into 1 3 5 1 3 5 on the right hand. You don't have to accent them or pulsate them. Just emphasize them by counting in your head. 1 3 5 is your new metronome over the top of your "mark time."
4. Add a triplet to your check pattern on each of 1, 3, and 5. I alternate the way I count the triplets from 1 3 5 "ghosting" notes on the other two beats to counting each one "bug-a-duh bug-a-duh bug-a-duh."
5. Play single strokes.
6. Add new sticking or accents any way you like. Have fun.

I like to add two paradiddles with one note on the end. Rlrr Lrll R | Lrll Rlrr L | OUT.
