Explosive 3 Beat Phrase – with Video

Here’s a short phrase I came up with after revisiting some of my triplet/gospel video lessons from a few years back. It’s a simple 3 beat phrase consisting of 5 notes. I use it a lot in Jazz as an explosive Billy Cobham style phrase but it also works as a fill for groove or gospel playing. See the video at the bottom for my attempt.

  1. Hi Sam, another fine example. Thanks also for the link to the Bike Song right-hand technique video. My only problem with the latter is I can’t access it: when I click on the link it says ‘this video is private – sorry about that’. And also the e-mail address I had for you (the ‘at me dot com’ one) – I’d sent a message of thanks re the vid, but also mentioned not being able to view it – is now bouncing back saying ‘undelivered mail returned to sender’. Regards, Seb
