I play the guitar on an advanced level, and now I decided to start drumming a little bit, because I want to improve rhythmically, and, of course, because it's a lot of fun.
As I don't have lessons I just play around a little bit, listen to songs and try to get the rhythm and so on. Now, my problem is, that I can play some rhythm, but I'm not tight and precise at all for some beats. For example if I play a beat like the following on the bass drum, while having 16ths going on the hi-hat and play the snare on 2 and 4:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + X X X X
I'm not very precise on the last bass drum hit, which means it sometimes comes a bit too early, but mostly a bit too late. Now to the actual question:
If I see that I'm not as tight as I should be somewhere, what's to do? Just practice this rhythm until I'm as precise as I want to be, or rather do something simpler instead, and come back to it later?
