Next we cover some semiquaver triplets that lead onto a bass drum note instead of a note played with sticks, before a look at the crotchet triplet. Finally, we take a look at one of the more simple instruments available, finger cymbals, and then move onto some alternate notation for tom tom parts.

This part first looks at playing sixes around the drum kit, and then moves onto the drag paradiddle rudiment. We then look at some compound time rhythms with single quavers resting before looking at some kit rhythms featuring the right hand part being played on a cowbell. Next is some alternate notation where all notes are tails up, with the hi hat part still being portrayed by cross headed notes.

We then look at the ratchet, and how to splash the hi hat with your foot, and then finish up with a study.

This part is entirely written in 5/4 time, where there are five crotchet beats in a bar. We first look at just the snare drum, then we add in the bass drum before looking at some kit rhythms. To get some more practice with this new time signature we then look at clicking sticks together and damping a drum with the hand.

We then do some triplet fills in swing rhythms where we play two drums at once before finishing with a study.
