Ghost Notes and the Purdie Shuffle

I need some general tips on how to do ghost notes. I can't make them as clear and defined, yet quite, as the following example.

Here's what I'm trying to play: Bernard Purdie's Purdie Shuffle. I'm not even sure if I'm placing the ghost hits in the appropriate places. Where exactly do they fall?

So, any general tips would be greatly appreciated.

I've been playing for about 3 years. I've never been really serious about it but it comes pretty naturally to me. My drummer keeps his kit here and he taught me a bunch of stuff and it all kind of went from there. How about you?

When you're playing a snare drum, you generally want to strike it in the center of the drum for a normal hit. For a ghost note, you're going to want to make it so it's a quieter note. Easy ways to do this is to hit the drum slightly off center, which produces less noise. You also want to just tap it lightly. You can see him doing this in the video. I taught myself how to play this shuffle probably about two years ago. It was pretty tough at first but as soon as I figured out what it was, it became very natural to do almost instantly.

EDIT: I had to delete my first description of the shuffle, it was confusing for even me to look at . My best advice would be to leave the bass drum out, just learn how to get that "1 2 3 1 2 3" feel on the hihat and the ghost note on the snare drum. When you get this down, start playing the beat, only without the ghost notes. Get these both down good, then try to combine.

More than likely, this is going to be confusing as fuck for your limbs to learn how to do, but it'll eventually just click and you'll be like "Ohhh! This is easy!".

we had a drum kit back home when i was a kid, taught myself how to play but its never gotten serious. I really love to step behind our drummers kit during rehearsals. Had a killer time drumming some Down stuff a couple of hours ago as a matter of fact!

Alright, well I had a quick chance today to setup some of my drums and make a video. I did it in a rush and it was edited very quickly, so don't mind that

Anyway, I hope this helps. There's a bunch of links in the side videos about ghost notes too. I don't know how legit they are though, didn't check them out.
