Re: Hi-Hat Stepping (Lift & Close on every beat)
Just keep practising.
It's not going to happen overnight, you have to work on it. It'll happen when it happens :)
It could be a week - it could be 6 months. You've been given plenty of good advice, so go and apply it :).
Also, don't forget the obvious - practise JUST tapping your left foot on the hihat while doing nothing else. Focus on the technique, try to avoid letting the pedal 'top out' (where the spring forces it to full extension and creates an audible clicking noise).
Just go and practise it and you'll get it :)
