I've been working through some hi hat independence exercises and most actually feel pretty comfortable and I've found some good use for them while soloing, but playing anywhere other than two and four while comping just doesn't feel or sound right to me. I've been recording myself to check my time and dynamics and those seem okay. I figure I could put in the work to make it more natural, but with so much else I want to work on, I'm not sure how much time I should put into it. My question is as a non-professional non-conservatory-bound jazz drummer am I limiting myself or am I going to sound dated playing with more experienced people by only playing two and four? Thanks in advance.
