I first heard this idea
played by Tommy Campbell and
later by Dennis Chambers.It involves
kicking the hi hat pedal plate with the heel to make a splash sound and then closing it with the toe.
Basic heel toe splash .
You can even play (ting
ting t ting style) with your foot for a Jazz ostinato.
Here it is being used
to even out an odd time phrase.By using heel splash it keeps the stokes from alternating and simplifies the pattern.
After spending a relatively
short period of time practicing this type of phrase,you will be surprised with what you will be able to play over the top
So amaze your mum or dog or
any of your greatest fans!!!!!?
