This exercise is inspired by a swing rhythm pattern played by Omar Hakim with Sting.
This rhythm is played on the ride cymbal with the hi-hat foot placed on the 2nd and 4th beats.
The bass drum and the snare drum are played repeatedly throughout the rhythm pattern.
The last line is played as a shuffle with a quarter note triplets accentuated on the ride cymbal bell..
