Legatos - Scales
"Legatos" focuses solely on legato strokes, but unlike your everyday 8-on-a-hand it takes that concept and applies it to rhythms you might see in more practical literature. It still retains the structure and simplicity of an exercise, but helps the performer understand how to approach the drum correctly outside of straight 8ths.
"Scales" familiarizes the performer with many scalar patterns that Aaron Locklear tends to use throughout his writing. Its main goal is to give the performer a thorough command of the horizontal landscape of their board, as well as add to their music theory chops.
