Practice loop: slow blues

Here's a loop you're going to need this week, as I finish writing the 6/8 prep for my patented(?) Harmonic Coordination Improved™ method. Sampled from Melvin Sparks's Blues for JB, the tempo is a stately 66 bpm which should give you ample space to work out the coordination— for my thing, or anything else you need to do slow with a triplet feel.

The drummer here is playing a Midnight Special-type groove, with the hihat on the &s of the shuffle— on the skip notes. Maybe that beat has a name, I just know if from that tune.
