This is a straight library piece— I’ve just transcribed the quarter note exercises from Reed into 8th notes in cut time, which will be more useful to me than the original. This same basic collection of rhythms certainly exists elsewhere, but I like connecting things to Syncopation, and following its format.


The bass drum part is included for the sake of tradition, I guess; I never use the written BD part when working with Reed. At the end I’ve included the Reed’s 16 bar exercise, which is now an 8 bar exercise, but is still called “16 bar exercise”, which is certainly going to be confusing, and I should probably revise that.
