Watch the Kick, Snare, Hi Hat online guitar lesson by Dmitry Lisenko from Percussive Acoustic Bass (Foundry)
In this example, we're using all three main elements of a drum kit. We start with a kick, this time using the upper kick. The movement of our arm is a bit different. Imagine that you're accelerating on a motorbike! We don't have large movement amplitude, that's why we have to put a bit force into it.
After the kick, we perform the down stroke hi hat, strumming all the strings with a nails of your fingers. Avoid unwanted movements. After the hi hat, we're playing snare. Middle finger, or index, if you want.
After the hi hat, our fingers are raised up, and all we have to now is put them down to get the snare sound.
On our way back, we're playing one more hi hat, this time it's an up stroke. After the snare, don't raise your fingers, your fingers are already in place, just slide them up.
