Double Paradiddle Hi Hat & Rim Pattern

Created this groove whilst messing around in the studio yesterday. Basically a straight 16th version of a Double Paradiddle (not sextuplet like how they’re usually played) with the right hand on the rim of the snare and the left on a hi hat. Obviously as it’s a 6 note sticking pattern it reverts back to the beginning again mid way through the second bar, so I have written the second bar as 2/4 and then just go straight back to the beginning. I was dead simple with the bass drum just so it’s easier to hear where it starts each time, feel free to be more creative with it. Here’s a SC link so you can hear out it sounds (one at mid tempo, the other slightly faster). Enjoy!
