Most of these parts are taken from African Drum Rhythms Practice CD 3. The second and third part sound especially nice together. The characteristic bass part can be played with any of the following bell parts, depending on what feel and tempo you prefer. Note the prolonged rest after the flam in the signal. This variation is best used at low tempo.
