Default Simple shuffle question

I imagine this has been asked before and it is for sure a newb question but when I searched I got a bajillion hits and I don't wanna bother my teacher right now...

In the Purdie Shuffle there is an accent on the first beat of the third triplet - among other accents. Is the accent on the 3 to be played on both the hi-hat and the snare or just the snare?

Thanks and this thread can be destroyed once someone answers!

On the third beat you may definitely play a hi hat there.

I like to use a Swiss Army triplet for playing with the Purdie Shuffle (play the capital B as an accent):

See where that takes you. :D

Both hi hat and snare. Accent the hat on all the quarter notes, plus the barks.(not sure what else to call them, psshts?) Beat 3 (beginning of the 3rd triplet) is where the snare backbeat goes. Kick pattern can vary as can the psshts.

Exposing my ignorance even more - god I love forums where I can be unashamedly ignorant
:-)

What quarter notes? I thought it was 4 sets of triplets? Is the first beat of every triplet a quarter note?

Thanks for the patience!

Yes.

1-trip-let, 2-trip-let, 3-trip-let, 4-trip-let...


Don't worry about the newb questions...we've all been there.

It's a good thing you have a teacher as well. A lot of folks try to work out too much of this stuff on their own.

While we're on it I've been learning it (finally) . where to put the kick? I currently put it on the 1 (i.e. with the psshts). i find it difficult to try a kick anywhere else for this. i guess its just practice.

This is what I have been using to try to learn it -

There are several exercises and such, I believe the music for his third session is the full shuffle.
