Displacing a groove - 16th notes - 02

Part 2 of the previous displacement thing. This is the kind of thing that's so obvious I don't like to put it on the site, but it's an intermediate step to the next thing, and it's not totally without value. Play it a few times, and take advantage of its easiness to work on your sound and accuracy. The goal is to learn a certain creative move based on a basic beat— once you know it's a thing you can do, and can execute it with confidence, you can move on. It won't take long.

Again, it's not a terrible idea to play each pattern alternating with pattern 1. You can do both of these pages with the various standard cymbal rhythms— quarter notes, offbeat 8th notes, 16th notes, 16th notes alternating, 1 &a-2 &as.
