Learning polyrhythms

Alright... I know a basic 3:2 pattern with hihat/kick, but there's nothing to that.
Unfortunately, that's as far as it goes.

So, if any of you got some ideas on how to get started on this technique, that'd be great - I know I should be using a metronome, but I always seem to lose count when combining hand & feet for a polyrhythm. Some beginner or intermediate polyrhythms are welcome. Tips on how to play 'independenty' with each limb are also appreciated!

C'mon, somebody here must have taken it to a higher level than just blastbeats?

I've never really messed with them before...

I'd be interested to hear also.

This may sound a bit obvious/dumb but Meshuggah are a good resource for this. The Mouth Licking What You've Bled has a simple 5:4 in it. And a riff in Stengah has a riff in it where there is no 4/4 component minus a snare drum played on the third beat as usual, but there is no actual played count for it on the cymbals or whatever.
