    We have all been there. I suggest playing each limb separately and the 2 limbs together and then all 3.

    Exactly what Dale said, get the constant going first (known as an ostinato), in this case the hi hat opening on the + of each beat, get comfortable with that, then add the snare and bass drum in turn, put it together slowly and don't over reach yourself with speed. Get it sounding good slowly before you take up the tempo by small increments.

    Pretty easy, but not a very "groovy" beat. The back and forth play between bass drum and snare especially when it swaps every measure is rather cumbersome, IMO.

    Depending on how long you have been playing. It’s a beginners book.

    Try playing it without the open hi-hats. Do that found a few minutes each day. Then after a week or so, try and add the hi-hats in.

    You have to walk before you can run. He's learning - not writing a groove to a tune.
    up yours
