Rhumba # 1

This is a LATIN RHYTHM which can be played as a repeating TWO BAR pattern , OR , either of these bars can be used as a repeating SINGLE BAR pattern.

LEGEND ...............

1. Pay very close attention to the sticking.

2. When playing the "open hi-hat", make sure that it lasts for the whole eighth note.

3. Bass Drum quarter notes on the third and fourth beats of each bar may be omitted if desired, but, are normally required for authenticity.

This second version is the same pattern using a different sticking. NOTE: The left foot plays the Hi-Hat on the first beat of each bar. This one is easier!!!
