Keep building those neural pathways!

Here's a couple of ideas using a 7 beat on again/ off again pattern and mixing it with dotted quarters in 4/4 time.

The first example has me playing a fairly garden variety samba/surdo pattern with the rest of the kit while the right hand plays the on again/ off again 7 thing.

The next one is the same except I'm also playing dotted quarters in the left hand.

Finally, in the last one I'm playing a Rock beat with my hands, dotted quarters with the bass drum, and 7 beat figure on the hi-hat. I lost it a bit near the end. I, as always, remain (as a musician, as well as a Father, Husband, and citizen of the planet) a work in progress!!!
