On The Beat (Part 34)

Another month, another pattern. A busy little number, this one will take up plenty of space in the mix and should therefore be treated to a sympathetic bass line. The activity is centered round the bass drum which, as you can see, throbs along covering a significant proportion of each bar.

The hi/low bongo part could freely be replaced with congas without any modification, and if you find yourself needing greater pattern variations, these would be the obvious instrument lines to develop. Anyone who knows this series well will know of my reluctance to categorise rhythm - and this one is no exception. Program it in, and then decide where to use it.
