Just had a go at this now, cool idea. Although it effectively turns the ride into just quarter notes, no? Thus rendering a different sound than playing everything with the left.

I gotta spend more time in this forum.

That's an extremely common version of a shuffle - the shuffle on the snare and the cymbal playing just quarter notes.

Haven't seen this sticking before, though. Pretty cool. I'll try it out with the group next time. I can see the advantages.

That really makes a lot of sense. It’s much more of a challenge to get the accents on the 2 & 4 when the left hand is doing all the work.
I’m going to work on this! Screw the old way!!! Haha! :)

This is very useful sticking, picked it up from this same video earlier. It's really good pattern, if you wish to get the backbeat pop bit more than with the usual 2 handed shuffle pattern, since the left hand has time to get height and velocity for 2 and 4.
