Jig Pattern-The Drop In

This jig pattern is called the drop in as it has 8 soft beats at the end and then starts the new part with a loud DUM.  The pattern is very straightforward and goes as follows:

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6
Dum Ta Dum Ta Dum Ta

Here is the pattern played slowly on its own.

Here is the pattern played along to the slow jig in the home practice player.

While it is a simple pattern it can be made more complex by using some syncopation (off beat strokes).
