Tamborim Rhythms

This lesson applies a Tamborim rhythm to the drum set with a Samba ostinado being played with the feet.

The Tamborim is a single-headed small drum (about 6") very similar to a tombourine but with no jingles used in Brazilian music. An ostinado is a short musical phrase played or sung over and over.

Note: The snare is to be played as a rim click.

This next pattern is a variation of the last one and a bit more advanced. We will still play the same pattern on snare drum with the samba ostinado underneath but this time we’ll vary the ride pattern. Practice getting the hand pattern mastered first before adding the samba pattern with the feet. This is a cool and very functional beat and I have used it often in a playing situation.

Master these two beats and I know it will serve you well.


Thanks and have FUN!
