This series deals with the ability to move the accents around in a 1/16 note hi-hat groove. Being able to move accents can be a great way to alter feels or imply modulation. These four examples are the primary accents you should be comfortable with. Use a metronome and make sure you always feel a steady quarter-note pulse. When you are comfortable play the patterns together and jump around from one to the other. Make sure the accents stand out from the other notes.
