We're using the lower kick here. Keep your hand relaxed, don't strain it. You should have a feeling of a free falling hand. Don't add pressure, or put any force, let your arm fall. We're using the under the body snare. You can hit it with the middle finger, index, or both fingers.
Now we're starting slowly to play the rhythm. kick – snare, and in the end we have 2 kicks and snares. Avoid any unwanted movement, the less you move, the faster and easier you'll be able to play. It's important to practice all rhythms with a metronome! Start with a slow tempo, and when you feel comfortable raise the tempo.
