For four years at Berklee College of Music I played exercises one through nine just about every possible way. It was the "Alan Dawson" method of playing Ted Reeds book. Examples included -play the figures in each limb with a basic swing or latin rhythm in the other limbs, then do them again and fill in all the spaces with triples. Not exercises for the beginner, these can be put into your playing right away. Buy this book and wear it out, then buy another copy and keep going.
