7.- Latin for Drummies – Funkifying Candombe
There are two different elements that let us identify a funky groove: Ghost notes and hihat openings.
And as a comment I´d like to add all the subdivisions of sixteenth notes.
More opening possibilities
As in funk grooves, you can make a two-bar melody.
For that, we’re gonna modify the fourth pulse of our first groove, using an accented second sixteenth note and one ghosted fourth sixteenth note.
