Apply the fake double kick concept in the time signature of 5/8.
In this groove construction lesson you will be taking the Fake Double Kick movement learned previously and applying it to the time signature of 5/8. The previous lesson focused on the co-ordination elements of the part so it is fairly essential to cover this first. In this lesson I will just be presenting four grooves using the concept, a note on how the groove has been built is included with each pattern. Remember, the part is played open handed.
This groove uses eighth note hi hats and the snare is played with the right hand. This part has a compound time feel.
