Here's an exercise using only doubles with a quintuplet played at the end of each phrase (also as doubles) which creates a new melody each time around.
A simple idea but coordinating it with the bass drum and hat took some practice.

Do you know by "how much" it moves each Time it cycles?
Need to write it out "on a staff" (with Pitch/placements) So we can see, see, see...
