Five, six, seven, and right, boom. Five, six, seven, and. Mm-hmm.

Then you're going to continue on to add a right hit and a right on your thigh and a left hit on your thigh. Cool? So you're going to go boom, boom bop, boom, bop bop. Boom, boom bop, boom, bop bop. Five, six, seven, and bop, bop bop, bop, bop bop. Okay? So now you're going to add a left stomp and another hand clap to that combo right there. And we're just going to go boom, left, clap. Okay?
