That's great, Niki.... It's really not as hard as it sounds.
Here are a couple of tips on working that groove:
Don't play any ghost notes on the snare drum as doing this tends to make that particular groove sound too busy.
The first snare hit should be on 2
, and the next snare hit should be a 16th directly after the 4
The kick drum is a 16th directly after the count of 1
, One beat on the and
(8th note) after the 2
count and a double beat 16th right on the count of 3
... All the accented syncopated fills are played on the hi hat.
If you haven't transcribed this already, I will try and get you the notation on this.
Send me a clip of what you come up with when you can.
Go for it and happy grooving!
