Trinity Rock and Pop Drums - Grade 2
A great piece of music that really puts your hi-hat control to the test at this level.
Before this, there really isn't any song that you need to do much with the hi-hat. However, in this one we've got to be able to play it open on the '+' of our 4/4 bar.
So, when we're counting our usual 1+2+3+4+, the hi-hat is opening on every '+' and closing again on each beat (1, 2, 3, 4).
There are also a couple of little fills, starting either on the 3rd or the 4th beat, which aren't too challenging, but sound pretty cool.
Here's a full lesson on the piece:
And here's the original to listen to and play along with:
