Odd Time Stickings
by Gary Chaffee
Gary Chaffee, in the field for over forty years, has taught some of the drum industry's top talent. His four-volume Patterns book series along with his videos are considered must-haves for any drummer. This book expands his original concept of stickings into their use in odd-meters. The book is arranged into 3 main sections. Let's check it out.
Gary's sticking system, which consists of 11 sticking combinations made up of various combinations of single and double strokes, is explained in this chapter.
PART 1 - METER STUDIES
PART 2 - ADDITIONAL POSSIBILITIES
Odd Time Stickings: The Bottom Line
When practiced with enough repetition to build these sticking patterns into your muscle memory, Gary's Odd Time Stickings will not only increase your expertise and ease of playing odd-metered time signatures, it will increase your facility to play polyrhythmic patterns such as 4 against 3, 3 against 5, etc. This will greatly expand your options for playing both groove and solo patterns in any style of music.
