The left foot, the final frontier!

Hey everyone in this musical neighbourhood we call the internet!
Here's a couple of hi-hat things. They both use a 2 quarter note then one dotted quarter note pattern (seven 8th notes long) while in both examples the right hand plays 8th, the left hand plays quarters, and in the first example the bass drum plays the samba/bossa pattern and in the second example the bass drum plays more of a salsa pattern. I find the coordination where the feet are playing independently of each other some of the most challenging stuff.

Ex. 1

Oh also in example 1 the hi-hat is splashing, in example 2 the hi-hat is played closed.

Ex. 2
