Afro Puertorrican Beats on the Drum Set

Here is an adaptation of the language from the “Barril” de Bomba to the drum set using Hight & Low pitches = Snare &  Bass Drum. The results are some really funky grooves. I added eight notes on the hi hat.  Towards the end of the video I just improvised around the same theme.

I transcribed the part and then adapted to the set.

Please check out this great album by Los Rebuleadores de San Juan.
