I don't have audio for this graphic

A pretty basic beat.

This is audio for the above Rumba Columbia beat notation. 

Each 2 bar phrase is repeated then you move on to the next working your way down the page. 

This is just one interpretation of a Rumba Columbia beat, there are many.

This recording is not much like the written notation, it's more like jamming with a variation of the groove near the end.

This is a rough take (old recording!) of a Songo groove as notated above. 

In the recording each 2 bar phrase is played twice so just pretend there are repeat signs.

Open hi-hat not notated... it's an interpretation... and it's Linear not Linar!

In the recording each 2 bar phrase is played twice so just pretend there are repeat signs.

Basic grooves written out in drum notation. 

I've included audio samples which makes the notation easier to read!

Audio recordings on this page are very old and not representative of my recordings today
