Man this electronic kit has opened a whole new practice world for me. I'm back up again practign about 2 hours a night, but in a more cool way! The module has about 100 sequenced 8-16-and 24 bar patterns to play with in all kinds of different styles. I find a pattern I like (like a moderate funk pattern) and then take one of my old drum books out (right now it's Mel Bay's "Drummers Cookbook", and play each of those patterns to the tune playing on the module. One particular pattern is 24 bars long and I have set a goal to play each of these book exercises for the entire length of the sequenced pattern. And believe you me, it aint easy making it through with no mistakes. If I make a mistake, I do it all over again. If I get thru, I go on to the next exercise. The pattern fits right to the exercises, the sequencer is in perfect time, and I have to make each pattern feel as good as I can. Makes for quite an endruance run all in all.
And it also helps my teaching because I'm using this particular book with a couple of students now. Really helps me eliminate embarassing flubs while demonstrating. "Fusion" this would be right up your alley!
