37/100 Drumkit Samba

And another samba added to the samba page:

Set up a steady count  of 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Allocate the numbers as follows;

1, 5, 6 Surdos;   7,8 Repiniques;  3 Tamborim;  1 2 3, 5 6 7 Ganza;  2 4 6 8 Agogo (this is the hardest one to keep on track – use “ghost strokes” to help them stay on their numbers

The  “4-Count Break” works well with this samba; here are the instructions again;

It needs two signals before you blow the whistle.

“keep going” –  go up to a section, or an individual and draw a small circle with my arm (like whisking an egg with the bowl tilted almost horizontal)

“stop for a count of 4” -go up to a section and hold up four fingers in front of them.

Everyone continues to count in their head, so when you give the signal for everyone to join in again, they should know where beat 1 is, even if you have been rash enough to have just the agogo bells soloing on the even numbers!
