Question

“There is a pattern which notes should be omitted, can you identify it?”

Answer

 

When three bass drums in a row occur the first one of the three may be omitted. This is to not allow triples into the exercise so we can keep focusing on doubles. Of course you may play the triples but know that you won’t be able to reach a tempo higher than your RF triple stroke allows you to.
