This works best if you play exactly in the pocket with both rhythms. Try playing at 90 bpm with your left hand and 92 bpm with your right hand (it probably helps to play percussion too, just tapping something is fine). Are you still in the pocket when the sound comes back after silence?

I think you are doing pretty well if you are still in the pocket even after the first silence in one hand. Never mind keep going through all the silences in both hands all the way to the end. How far can you get?

It is likely to be a big challenge to do it with both hands at once. So another thing you can do is to choose just one rhythm, e.g. left or right hand, and try that instead. That's hard enough to keep going at a steady tempo at say 92 bpm through the silences, when you hear the metronome ticking at 90 bpm for the other rhythm.

I've uploaded another version of this video which plays all the way through without silences here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cy9a...

Also this is a really tough exercise. If you haven't tried them yet try the easier ones on this page first:

Or, here as a video playlist:

This is another one of these exercises for steadiness and independence, encouraging you to use & strengthen your own inner sense of a steady rhythm and tempo and not to rely on the metronome for it.
