Page o' coordination: Dannie Richmond-inspired — harder

I need to keep saying this: we do so many of these Pages o'... that a person could get the mistaken impression that I think this is the best way to learn drumming vocabulary. I don't. We're just trying to make ourselves play things that are very difficult get to through the normal Syncopation/Ted Reed-based method— which is the real basis of everything, in my book.

Anyway, here's a variation of our previous Danny Richmond-inspired page, this time with a slight variation in the bass drum and hihat parts, and a little more irregular left hand parts, which makes it quite a bit more difficult. You do have to think while you do these.

Hopefully we all know what to do with these by now: 1) do the full page at once, and 2) move your left hand. That's the complete drill.
