Playing beats where your ride hand has nothing to do

That's when I usually add a tambourine on the 2 and 4 with the snare. My tambourine is set up on a stand under my hi hats to the left. Same height as my snare.

I picked up a pop/rock gig the other night, and in addition to having to learn 15 of their original tunes, I had to get used to drum parts like this. It was weird, as in jazz the ride pattern is really what keeps time.

I ended up tapping the stick on my leg, which wasn't ideal, but it was so weird to just have my right hand sitting idle while my other limbs were moving!
