Second entry in this little intermediate-level series of funk stickings in context, this time using a five-note idea: RLRLL
Learn the first pattern in 5/4, and be able to count out loud along with it— just “1-2-3-4-5.” The numbered exercises can be played on whatever cymbals you like; you can move around more on the accented part. Feel free to hit a crash as you come back around to the beginning of each exercise— make a logical musical phrase out of it. You can also start incorporating some left hand moves during the 16th notes.
