Yup, that's right. Although it jumps right in mid stroke so I had to rewind it a few times to follow along! It would have been easier to see and feel (at least for me) if you counted it in and had the camera on the hi-hat side.

Also, to be nit-picky, I felt a little surge in tempo around 0:11 for a moment. Like you really started to feel the cross rhythmic groove at that point so you pushed it. But you brought it back. Again, that's just me being nit-picky.

Good job. Not an easy pattern- thanks for sharing it!
