Samba de Angola II

I’ve been looking to expand the “Samba De Angola” pattern that was shown to me by Chuck Silverman and here it is. In this lesson you will notice that we have multiple riding surfaces with both the right and left hand. The left hand ride will alternate between the hi-hat or cowbell and the snare drum. The right hand ride alternates between cymbal, cymbal bell, or cowbell and the tom toms (large tom ~ small tom ~ large tom). This really has a lot of movement and sound.

Start slow and keep the notes even. Play as soft as possible to help in control of your movement. It feels like some Marshall arts move ~ Ah weed wackier, when you can play this at 170 bpm at pp. volume you may leave the woodshed.

Mmmm …. now that's cookin'
