and I must check out that recording..

Jake Hanna was such a beast
That was a pretty cool video, but I think if it were me, I'd alternate - eithe tom or bass, but not both in the same figure.
So maybe - RLRRLTT, RLRRLFT, RLRRLB - something like that.
Spreads it out a little more and keeps it from being too much or too busy.
mix in a few cymbal hits on that last beat and it keeps it from being too "rudimentary".


P.S. - I'm sure that guy was fairly limited on his recording equipment, but if he ever makes another vid like that again, he needs to SPEAK UP! I could barely hear him, even with my speakers cranked.
