12.- Latin for Drummies – Hi hat variations – Candombe in 3/4 on the drum set

In order to embellish our interpretation, we need to identify which elements we can use.


First of all, let´s remember a possible interpretation in ¾ with the original drums:

  • Text Hover

For the drum set we´ve created a 2-bar groove:

  • Text Hover
Embellishments

 

For the ostinato we have different possibilities and all of them come from the variations of the “Madera”:

1st beat

  • Text Hover

2nd beat

  • Text Hover
  • Text Hover

3rd beat

  • Text Hover
  • Text Hover

We can also add some of hi hat openings:

1st beat

  • Text Hover

2nd beat

  • Text Hover

3rd beat

  • Text Hover

All of this possibilities can be combined with each other and create a new ostinato.


Here´s an example using an embellishment on each beat of the bar:

  • Text Hover

I hope you enjoy this interpretation and you can apply it to your playing. Have fun!
