Overview

This is a complex diddle exercise that weaves in and out of duple and triple feels. It's also nicely divided into 4 sections so if you or your ensemble aren't quite ready to hit the last half you can start with the first half, or even the first section and build into it.

We're going to give it the "intermediate" rating as when it's taken at tempo (dotted quarter equaling 190) it's pretty advanced, but that said, don't be scared off. Slowing it down makes it much more approachable and accessible to younger individuals/ensembles. Not to mention, by having the 4 sections and many tempos this becomes an exercise that can grow with you or your ensemble!
