This exercise includes 2 beats, Jazz beat 1 and Funk beat 5. Before you jump into this exercise, play the example video first to get a feel for the 2 beats and backing music.

Playing even the most basic of jazz beats feels very different to a basic rock beat. If you're finding it difficult, remove the bass drum and just play the cymbal and Hi-hat pedal. Once you feel comfortable, 

Add the bass drum on beat1.
