Page o' coordination: triplet pattern with cymbal variations - 01

A slight variation on our usual page o' coordination thing; here we're doing a set triplet pattern on the snare drum and bass drum, along with various cymbal parts— some are standard rhythms, and some are just for technical practice:

You could do the usual POC left hand tom moves, or just improvise the moves, and extend the workout by doing combinations of patterns, the way we did with the Funk Control series:

1-2, 1-3, 1-4... 2-3, 2-4, 2-5... 3-4, 3-5, 3-6... etc.  

Do each measure of the combinations one or two times. And you can play the page as written, with no hihat. or add the left foot on 2 and 4, or on all four beats.
