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 ?
here is a link to the song
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.
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 !
