Page o' coordination: Simple 3:2

Coming at that 3:2 hemiola polyrhythm from the triplet side— all of our recent hemiola funk stuff has been using it in a duple subdivision. Here we'll use the 2 side as the primary pulse, played with both feet in unison, and the 3 played on the cymbal, felt as a quarter note triplet— the 12/8 rhythm here is equivalent to a quarter note triplet in 4/4.

I've written a hundred pages like this, and if you've done one of them, you know the method: learn the whole page as written, then drill it with my set of stock left hand moves.
