Accents on 2 & 5...
This video is the first in a series I'm working on for practicing 2-way independence with the hands. All exercises are in 6/8 - with accompanying examples correlating the handwork to a 16th-note feel.
Using the unusual pulse of exercise 2 to create a 'linear-style' fill.
... more musings on the natural tendency to revert to a 16th-note feel.
I have this one just about well enough to play it... and hear it (the most important thing). The next step is to get comfortable switching hands. The displacement of the accent on beats 2 & 5 is awkward - but when you get it right... it's enjoyable...

Began studying drums in February 2018. Loving every minute of it!.
