I love this. My high school group that I instruct is doing this number. We don't have percussionist. While this might sound a little critical, I'm simply asking.... at the beginning when your cymbal strikes are 2 against three, Is the syncopation a tad rushed? I'm working with my kids on those dotted quarter rhythms getting them really clean (12 singers) and when we get to that element, I'm having them slap their leg for the downbeat and have the other hand placed so that we get an 8th note drive. You hear 2 slaps, down and up. When I do that, it seems the upbeat might be a little rushed? I'm not a percussionist and admire your skills and creativity. Nice job.
