Thank goodness it's Friday! Today's wake 'n break is a busy and uptempo two bar phrase broken up between the bass drum, hi-hats, and snare drum.

Looking at the hi-hats next, we have notes falling on 1 and the "a" of 1, the "&" of 2, on "3e", and then an open note on 4. Last but not least, our snare drum has a single accent on the "&" of 2, followed by ghost notes on the "e&" of 1, on "2e" and the "a", and then finally on the "&a" of 3. As always, I hope you dig it and have a great weekend! Also, I'm currently editing and posting this from my phone, so my apologies for not having the notation up right away.
