The most common duple feel of 4 can be felt and played in so many ways other than the most popular Westernized ways. You can look at this hi hat part as duple or in groups of 3. The kick beats are 3 beats long as well. The snare lays a long backbeat while landing on a long 2 and 4. Although this chant is identifiable when broken into individual limbs, the sum is quite unique. The best way to learn this chant is simply by hearing and feeling the hi hats against the kick and snare.
