Hi, welcome back. This is Week Five of drum lessons in the musical. This week, we're going to be working on playing the same basic rock pattern, but in the open position. And all this means is that instead of playing the eighth notes on the hi hat, we're going to play them on the ride cymbal. Now what this does is it gives you another color to work with, if you think of sound in terms of colors, is a very tight sounding sound. And this is much more rain kind of sound.

Now also what's great about a ride cymbal is you can also play in different places on it to get different kinds of sounds. So towards the outside, it's a little lower and wash here and as you move in towards the center, the sound gets tighter and higher pitch more like a belt. And you can even play right on the bell of the ride cymbal. This gives you a lot of different options in terms of your time. dynamics like how loud you're playing. Generally speaking, open position is often used when the song is getting louder, like in a chorus, for example, which is going to be like it as our song.

So to start practicing, you're just going to play the same beat. It takes a little getting used to you think your hands doing the same thing, but because they're uncrossed, it's going to feel a little different in your body. So again, just be patient and try and really keep them locked together. Another little challenge we're playing with the rights of all cousins washy, it can be sometimes easy to get a little lacks with your right hand because you won't be able to hear as crisply as you can on the hi hat to try and really zone in on the right hand and make sure it's nice and tight with the metronome. The last thing we're going to add this week is adding in some crash cymbal accents as part of our B section of our song. So because the B section in our case is a little louder and bigger.

At the beginning of every four bar section, there's a crash cymbal with the kick drum in front cluding the very first beat of the D section, there's a pickup in the melody. And then there's a crash and kick that starts off the pattern. So if I counted in like this, it's like 123 bop bada like that. If you play the crash cymbal, it's part of the eighth notes cycle that you're playing with your right hand. So you have to just get from here over to here in the same timeframe as you would if you were just here the whole time. So in the practice video, work on seeing if you can add those accents and get comfortable playing the open position.

Keep up the great work and we'll see in the practice video
