drums lesson #31

zip pdf

   This lesson is dedicated to the hi-hat open on upbeats, the second 8th note of a beat. The first step is the hi-hat played with the foot, like in the previous lesson #28, as a metronome.

   To go further with this lesson you can play the etude "Reggae Jam" available at The Shop.

EXERCISE #1

   Let's start with quater notes. The first one is played with the foot, then release the cymbals and play with the stick for the open sound on the next beat.

Tempo = 60bpm ; count in = 1234
