6D “Seven-Eleven” (Tenors)

This one can be tricky. Plays through 4 times starting at 110bpm, then 120, 130, and ends with 140bpm. Begins in 7/8, ends in 11/8, hence the name. Definitely a one-stop warm up. This one is for Tenors (4 Toms with 1 Spock). Wearing your headphones with the correct polarity is essential here, as the drums are stereo panned as if you were carrying them.
