Advanced Drum Lick Idea

For this week's drum lesson we have got part 2 of our intermediate to advanced drum lick. If you can smoothly combine the idea from last week with this idea you have got yourself a sweet sounding, advanced 2 measure drum fill that includes a number of sticking patterns — including a cheeky little stepped hi-hat idea.
