Single Strokes – Accents exercise

This exercise is designed to help us improve our control with single-stroke accents when playing with different counts. This example uses a 4, 5, and 6-count, all to a quarter-note metronome.

We’re going to place two accents at the beginning of each count and the tricky part will be transitioning from one count into the next. Practice each count individually and then start to piece it together. The goal is one bar of each count played in sequence, with clean accents and quiet ghost notes.
