After writing our first “Grid Book” Partial Gridding we wanted to explore more ways to utilize the Gridding Formula. Knowing that gridding requires two elements(a constant and a variable), we decided to experiment with making each hand responsible for one element at a time. Doing so caused each hand to become more rhythmically independent while still working together to create compound rhythms.
Over the years, Independence Gridding has become a staple in our marching, orchestral, and drum-set curriculums…and so, Independence Gridding was born.
