...as the left hand becomes a little more assertive - I turned my attention to the left foot today. We accept the hi-hat must 'close' on beats 2 and 4 (in this style)... but it doesn't have to open (evenly) on beats 1 and 3. It can swing too. I got it to swing (in spots) in this video... but (obviously) I'm still having to concentrate quite a bit to do it.
Began studying drums in February 2018. Loving every minute of it!.
