This exercise will help you practice hihat openings while playing a few different grooves - using 8th notes.
Check out the video of this lesson at the MZDRUMS YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/mzdrums
On Example #1 well play just the hihat openings without any bass drum/snare so you get familiar with all the
variations. Then, on Examples #2, #3 and #4 well try these variations while playing some grooves. Remember
to take your time and pratice each example slow, many times, before you speed up the metronome and/or
move on to the next groove. Have fun!

Obs: the symbol + shows when to close the hihat.
