This section from Joe Morello’s Master Studies II book (starting on page 78 to the end of the book) was again something that Joe and I collaborated on. What it does is take page 7 from the original Master Studies book and places it in different time signatures using eighth-notes and eighth-note triplets. It is a real challenge in concentration and great for playing over the line, meaning it takes more than one or two measures to resolve back to the beginning.

Remember to take it slowly and tap your foot on each downbeat. Watching the video I have provided (see below) as you follow along with the written music will help.
