    but yeah , if i had a remote ha,t it would be next my right pedal. this way i could build up ambidexterity also , using both hihats at once to me seems to be more fun
    I did try it - but whilst I was able to teach myself to lead with both my left and right hands, and taught myself to use bass drums with both feet, no matter how much I try I just cannot get to grips with using a hi hat with my right foot. Likewise I can't lead with my left foot on the bass drum either. Just can't do it.

    I surprised myself how quickly I picked up left foot lead on the bass. Still wished I had of started drumming open handed. Much easier to learn from the start.

    i agree sticks
    open handed just makes things a little more fun i switch sides all the time during playing , so i never really get too fatigued.
    my right legs still the more dominant one but playing left lead, is second nature now . my left side riding has really picked up as well .

    During my self isolation time due to this Covid-19 stuff I experimented with my remote HH at different positions.
    I really liked it just above my two middle toms. I could reach it with both hands and it really freed up the space above my snare. No cross hand playing.
    I also removed the static HH. That cleared up space to the left of my snare for wood blocks, tambourine and smaller toms.
