The opening and closing of the hi-hat can be done with a lot of different subdivisions. As a way of showing you just that, Jared Falk came up with three two-handed 16th note hi-hat drum beats that include the opening and closing of the hi-hat, and that he’ll teach you how to perform with this free drum lesson. These drum beats contain 8th and 16th note, as well as syncopated hi-hat openings. This is a fun and challenging collection of drum beats. Give this free drum lesson a try. You’ll have a ton of fun with it.
Be sure you’ve been through the free drum lessons “Beginner Opening-Closing Hi-Hats” and “How To Count Sixteenth Notes” before you take on this one. Those free drum lessons will respectively have you learning basic independence with your hi-hat foot – something invaluable for exploring these intermediate exercises with greater ease – and how to count, write and read 16th notes – the note value used with the drum beats in this free drum lesson.
Once you’ve been through this free drum lesson, check the free drum lesson “Two-Handed Hi-Hat Drum Beats“. You can use the drum beats from that lesson to expand on what you’ve learned here, by mixing them with the 8th and 16th note openings. If you’d like to keep exploring new ideas on how to use the opening and closing of the hi-hat for creating cool sounding patterns, we encourage you to check the free drum lesson “Advanced Opening-Closing Hi-Hats“.

Nice tutorial! Quite sure this one is gonna prove useful to me..
hehe I guessed there was some blooper when you were talking about the aggressive hi-hat, pulled a face, and then suddenly jumped to the next screen ^^
on setting up the hi-hat, how far apart should the bottom be from the top hat?
mark is up to you, if you want smooth sound keep it closer, if you want to make some noise, then separate them more. Hope you find this useful.
This is great!
