Triplet Warm-Ups in 5/4

Having a list of warm-ups that help you flex your muscles both mentally and physically should be the aim for any drummer. Below is a warm-up based on a comping exercise adapted from John Riley's Beyond Bop Drumming book. I've converted the original 4/4 exercise into 5 beat phrases and placed them under a 5/4 swing pattern. Make sure you keep the right hand swinging and play the comping phrases with a mezzo piano dynamic.
