  • March 03, 2009 Nice piece for young percussionists.

    A simple Latin piece that certainly be expanded upon. An advanced drum set play can spice it up with a more traditional Latin Groove. The "drum solo" section can lengthened at will. Additional Auxillary instruments can be added too. The arrangement is a great way to introduce "cut-time" in...

    a easy manner.
