Author: JiBe

There is 2 ways to create some hurries in passing patterns:
- sending a pass to the wrong hand
- sending a self to the wrong end

I deal with passes here. This page
deals with the selfs and we will assume that we're using a rhythm which is
not a 1-count.

Let's take any passing rhythm and see what we can do with the selfs:

- SSS with the 4-count (PSSS)
- S with the 2-count (PS), or PPS ...
- SS with the 3-count (PSS), and also chocolate bar (PPSS)
- ..

Let's call N the number of selfs. When the sequence of selfs starts, we're meant
to throw a pass N beats later. We can then use these N beats as we want, as long
as the pass arrives in the right hand at the right time.
## Throws of value 3:

- 3: normal self (crossing single)
- 3x: straight single (RH to RH, or LH to LH).

### Examples with a 3-count:

- (3x, -) (3*, -) (- , 3px)
- (3x, -) (3x*, -) (3p*, -)
- (3x, -) (1*, 3x) (- , 3px*)
- (3x, -) (1*, 3) (3p*, -)

### Examples with a 4-count:

- (3x, -) (3*, -) (-, 3) (3px, -) : L L R L (crossing pass)
- (3x, -) (3*, -) (-, 3x) (-, 3p*) : L L R R (normal pass)
- (3x, -) (3x*, -) (3*, -) (- , 3p) : L L L D (normal pass)
- (3x, -) (3x*, -) (3x*, -) (3px*, -) : L L L L (crossing pass)
- (3, -) (- , 3x) (-, 3*) (3px, -) : L R R L (crossing pass)
- (3, -) (- , 3x) (-, 3x*) (-, 3p*) : L R R R (normal pass)

- (3x, -) (1*, 3x) (3x* , 1*) (1*, 3p*): the box
- (1, 3*) (1*, 3*) (1*, 3*) (1*, 3p*): shower

## Throws of value 4:

- 4: normal straight double
- 4x: crossing double. Now you can do backcrosses in doubles.

### Examples with a 4-count:

- (-, 4x) (2, -) (3*, -) (-, 3px) : Crossing double, self, crossing pass
- (-, 4x) (4x, -) (-, 4p) : Crossing double, crossing double, double pass
(with backcrosses!)
- (-, 4x) (4x, -) (-, 4x) (- , 3p) : Crossing double, crossing double, crossing
double, pass
