Fourth Method: play the accents on the kick drum but play the unaccented notes one hand playing the snare alternating with the other hand playing the cymbal, or play a pattern of your choice with the same hand playing the cymbal and the other hand playing the snare. You will be blown away by the grooves that you can get with this method. Build up speed slowly. It is a real pleasure to be able to play these patterns in a relaxed manner. This is where you can really improvise using different hand patterns, making it sound like funk, latin, or middle eastern.
That’s my insanity program. When I get tired of practicing from one of these books, I go back to the next one. That way I keep getting better and I never burn out.
