  • This beat is a two bar pattern which means it repeats every two bars or measures

  • The cymbal in this beat plays even 1/4 notes- count: 1, 2, 3, 4

  • Notice the 1st two snare drums fall between the cymbals, they fall on the '&' counts

  • The 2nd and 4th bass drums also fall between the cymbals, they too fall on the '&' counts

  • Count the whole pattern: 1 - 2 & 3 & 4 - 1 & 2 & 3 - 4     Practise slowly at first
