32 bars Mixed Rhythms : Part 1

32 bars Mixed Rhythms : Part 1
In this final exercise, Lee’s put together a mixture of different rhythms - the sort of thing one might use in a real solo. What I think I’ll do is I’ll split it into 2 halves and do 16 bars each since I’m likely to make a mistake otherwise. 2,3,4 1,2,3,4 1&,2&,3,4 1,2,1&a
3,4 dugga dugga 1,2,3&,4& 1,2&,3&,4& dugga, dugga 1&a, &a 1&a, dugga 1,2,3,4 1&,2&,3&,4& 1,2,
I’m not sure I got that right. Notice in bar 12 that it’s 1&a, dugga, whereas in bar 15 it’s 1,2,1&a, dugga.

We look at Part 1 of 32 bars Mixed Rhythms.
