Accent Tap 8 Ate 7 Up is a warmup designed as an accent tap exercise that switches from 4/4 to 7/8 time signatures. This warmup progressively doubles the amount of accents per measure every four measures. This is a great warmup that can be used to perfect stick height precision, upstroke and downstroke control, and overall playing technique. Drummer Bot demonstrates this warmup in the video above. The full score can be downloaded from our Level 3 warmups page.
