A prospective student asked me about adding some Latin patterns to his rock playing. The first thing I thought of was this highly useful and amazing sounding Mozambique pattern, brought to the mainstream pop world courtesy of Steve Gadd. I’ve been using it in my playing for a long time, and it never disappoints. Check out Steve demonstrating the Mozambique at this drum clinic.
Now check out the PDF, with a transcription of the basic pattern, plus a few variations. You can open the PDF here: Nasty Lick 45
