Watch the Latin Beats online guitar lesson by Danny Gottlieb from Master Class Drum Lessons
There are two basic patterns, as illustrated in the video: a 2/3 pattern (Ex. 1) , and a 3/2 pattern (Ex. 2).
As with the other exercises, start with a simple part at first, such as just the ride cymbal. Then add the bass drum, beat by beat, followed by the snare rim clicks. You can play the hi hat on 2 and 4 or all 4 beats.
Notes: The BEST way to learn Latin rhythms and drumming, is to listen to Latin music!!! I recommend anything by Pancho Sanchez. The melodies are beautiful, and the rhythms always inspiring, challenging, and fun.
