Open hand playing is a technique that many drummers use to avoid crossing their hands over each other, especially when playing grooves. In this lesson, I incorporate open and what I call cross hand playing with basic jazz ride cymbal patterns in 8th-note triplet form while filling in the "missing" triplets on the snare using the non-cymbal hand. If that sounds overly complicated, just check out the video and written notation and it will all become clear.
