Linear phrases in 5/4, mixed rhythm — 02b - inversion

Moar Chaffee phrases in 5/4! This is an inversion of the last set: we're offsetting the phrases, so the listed phrase starts on the second note of each measure. The attraction there is that it puts the bass drum on the downbeat. I don't know about you, but I'm finding this way of practicing these patterns much more rewarding than the way they're presented in the book— vol. III of Gary Chaffee's Patterns series.

Use an alternating sticking, move your hands around the drums, do whatever you like with your left foot. If you want to put these into 4/4, just start playing the pattern on beat 2.
