Drum notes For Bossa Nova and Samba rhythms

These are the drum notes that accompany my drumming4life.com YouTube video, 6 BOSSA AND SAMBA PATTERNS EVERY JAZZ DRUMMER SHOULD KNOW.

The only Bossa Nova and Samba rhythms you need to know

This drum notation has the most widely used rhythmic patterns in the real world of Bossa Nova and Samba music.  I’ve been playing this wonderful music for nearly 35 years.  I learned these patterns from playing with great Brazilian musicians and I want to share them with you.

These drum notes are the secret sauce for your Bossa Nova drumming

When I perform Brazilian music I use these patterns a ton.  Most drummers don’t know these and often try to fake their way through Brazilian songs.  With these rhythm patterns, you’ll be able to sound authentic every time you play!

I teach how to use these patterns in the video below. Enjoy!
