Here we have very basic snare and bass drum grooves, with challenging accented 16th note hi hat accent rhythms.

The Hi Hats should be played with 2 hands, with the leading hand moving over to the snare drum on beats 2 and 4.

Tip: You could play the accents on the Hi Hat edge, and the non-accents on the top of the Hi Hat, for a really good contrast in volume and tone.

These drum beats are good to play after spending some time working on the more rudimental type 16th note accent snare drum exercises like Accent Techniques – Down, Tap, Up, Full Strokes and 16th Note Accent Exercises ebook – 10 pages.
