Hello and welcome to a lesson where we will be having a look at a different way of approaching a 12/8 feel. We will be applying a 2 over 3 feel in the right hand giving a fresh feel and sound to this classic feel.
Hi everyone and welcome to my first blog here on the Istanbul Mehmet site!
I am currently on a long European tour with Chris de Burgh and I want to talk a little bit about how I prepare for a tour, the equipment I use and just a bit of general insight. This tour is quite different to what I have done in the past and has presented a big challenge from the get go.
The Boi de Zabumba” (Zabumba’s Ox), also known as the Guimarães Accent or Baixada Accent, had its origin in the municipality of Guimarães, in the coast of the state of Maranhão, northeast Brazil. This rhythm, also called accent, is characterized by the presence of zabumbas (bass, mid and high drums), as well as other percussion instruments: pandeirinho or repinicadores (kind of very little drum) and maracás (kind of shaker).
Hello! It is with great pleasure that I have decided to start some articles here in this Blog at the invitation of Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals. I am a Brazilian drummer who also plays percussion. In my texts, I intend to explore some rhythms of my Country, which are originally performed at Brazilian Folklore festivities.
