      Does anyone know how to describe the rhythm Caetano plays on this song?
      I can duplicate it but is it triplet or other type rhythm ?

      Hi Thomas,
      There is no specific name for this rhythm. This is a rhythmic pattern called tresillo, that can be found in the music of many Latin American countries.

      Thank you

      One of my friends here is a drummer
      He said that the bass line was a “3 clave” with beats on 1, and-of-2, and 4
      The other fingers seem to be straight 8th notes

      Whatever it is and whatever it is called, I like it !
