i can play basic rock beats
im a right hand drummer and its difficult to play beats that involve me playing the bass twice (1 while playing with the hi-hats and one bass without the hi-hats) i dont know any better way to explain this
whenever i try to play my right hand which is on the hi hats starts moving faster
is there any kinda trick for learning these beats or do i just have o keep on practicing?
im sorry i couldnt explain better thats the best i can explain
but heres and example of the beat i keep on messing up
listen to the beat from 1:49-1:52
thats the kinda beat i keep messing up with

It sounds like you are having a basic independence problem. My advice is always:
Slow it down
Break it down
Start out slow. No, I mean S - L - O - W. At some tempo you will be able to play it. Once it "clicks" for you, increasing the tempo gradually is fairly easy.
Break it down into just two part to begin - maybe just the bass and hi hat. Once you can do those parts, then add in another hand or foot, depending on the groove. Finally add the remaining limb.

Tht should get you started with your HH sizzle. It's a combination of lifting your HH fot hitting the HH with a stick and then closing the HH again. It took me at least 3 days to learn it and then apply it to a song: American pie.

the one thing ive noticed from reading these threads is that people think theres some miracle tip thats going to make them play how they want in an instant. everyone has to work these things out slowly

Probably from too much Mellow Yellow back in the 60's.

And yes to to the above you need to start slow AND count.
Wow, that's very cool. Gonna try using that! Thanks for the link.
