I understand but when playing the ostinato I always try to check if I'm still playing it in the right way.
So that the 3's are flowing and that I play the latin bassdrum pattern right. Because sometimes I think I played it right and then I hear it back and I'll notice that the spacing of the bassdrum notes is all wrong on some places.

I know that when it's all perfect I notice it and I play the pattern real easy and it becomes this new part, but still I'm trying to hear the latin bassdrum ostinato underneath. (maybe I'm just crazy)

Thanks a lot for your time.
