So now we'll practice 2 different superimposed rhythms in one exercise. In this example I start with a 5/4 rhythm followed by a double time 6/4 rhythm.

Both are written out underneath. Again, take your time to assimilate the rhythm first before trying to superimpose it on top of the original 4/4 groove. Remember to try to keep things as tight and natural as possible. Good luck!
