Here’s our next idea for developing independence on the drums by using an ostinato and a melody.
This one uses the basic samba groove. You’ll note there is no part for left foot written out. Instead the left foot part is implied with the open and closed hit-hats. Sambas make a great ostinato to solo over – you can play the groove as written or use both hands to solo while the feet play their parts.
Have fun with this one!
