Tips

Try this, do that, and both

These tips will show you what can be done with a little creativity. After practicing this a number of times it will become a part of your playing. From this point forward you will no longer be searching for more inspiration. Instead you’ll be searching for more time to explore.

Never ever guess how you can prepare for anything ever again

You will be prepared. Sub 5 will prepare you. If you can take it, Exercises will show you exactly what needs to be done to get over the hurdle in order to reach your next goal. It’s there. You just need to use it.

Audio

Not too much music in quintuplets unfortunately..

I hope to be releasing original songs in quintuplets I have composed. So many projects, so little time.. For now MIDI loops will have to do.

MIDI

Click on a link in the MIDI part and the corresponding MIDI loop will open on our website.

You get to decide what tempo, which instruments, and which mix you want to play along to.

FAQ

Sub 5 specific Frequently Asked Questions

These are some specifical Frequently Asked Questions about Sub 5. If you have a question about something else please refer to our main FAQ section where all are bundled.

Do I have to be an advanced player to start playing quintuplets?

No you don’t. A basic understanding of rhythm and subdivision is advised though.

Do I need to buy and study Level 1 first?

No you don’t. All Level 2 publications can be used as stand alone learning material. But if you’re serious about drumming and rhythm we recommend getting Level 1. This gives you the best structural overview of rhythm possible. As such it will save you an incredible amount of time. Don’t try to reinvent the wheels of rhythm. Explore new territory with them.

Are the books in Level 2 updated annually as well?

Yes they will be. If there’s sufficient reason to do so. If we can upgrade it substantially we will. But if it ain’t broken we won’t try to fix it. We’ll fix other things first, or create more new material preferably.

Can I make suggestions for Level 2 books as well?

Yes please do! Go here and let us know how  you think we can make it better. Be sure to specify the exact location and problem you have. If you have a solution for it: great! If you don’t, no problem, we’ll figure it out. That’s what we do.

What level do I have to be at to be able to start using Sub 5?

I would recommend ironing out the wrinkles of playing in more common subdivisions first. Simply because these are needed more often.

Do I need to get a Premium Membership to study a Level 2 book?

No you don’t. The material in the books by itself is more than enough to get you going. But if you want to get the most out of your practicing time we recommend it though. If you can afford it, you’ll benefit from our 10000’s hours of experience and research. So why wouldn’t you?

Should I study volumes in Level 2 chronologically?

Absolutely not. This is up to your personal preference. If you like double bass drumming we suggest you get that particular volume a.s.a.p. If you don’t we suggest you don’t touch it with a 10 foot drumstick.

Can I try before I buy?

Absolutely! Besides viewing screenshots on top of this page, you can also register for a FREE Membership first to get a feel for how all of this works. If you like it you can upgrade your plan and download the added material instantly.
