Thanks Mr Riley for your drums methods. They are very nice to practise. I'm very fond of the way you play drums. Sincerly yours from France.

Hello Mr. Riley, I have a question regarding the 16th note ideas in your one beat phrases. At what tempo do the 16th notes lose the swing feel? Is it crucial that they are swung when soloing? I am just curious if they would sound out of place in music if they were straight at slower tempos.Thank you and have a pleasant day.

the below chart did not turn out correctly. I was referring to the intervals between notes if viewing each bar in 12 note intervals and its lack of perfect evenness if its swung at slower speeds
