Hi-Hat Tickling 

This is a cool, old school hi-hat technique. Place your left stick under the hi-hat cymbals, where it can some-
times play on the hi-hat stand. The right stick is on top, playing the cymba ls and the butt end of the left stick.

You’ll have to use traditional grip for this exercise.
