This month we are go­ing to take a Latin dance pat­tern and ap­ply it to the drum­set. Play­ing a Merengue drum­set pat­tern can be a chal­lenge for those not fa­mil­iar with the char­ac­ter­is­tics of this style. Merengue is of­ten per­formed at bright tem­pos, and the en­ergy is both dy­namic and con­ta­gious.

ACM stu­dent and UK Young Drum­mer of The Year 2017 An­mol Mo­hara demon­strates a com­mon Merengue pat­tern in the ac­com­pa­ny­ing video tu­to­rial (print and iPad only), while us­ing a track from the play­a­long book Drum­mer Wanted: A Ref­er­ence Guide To Pre­pare Drum­mers For Real-World Gigs, pub­lished by Al­fred Mu­sic.

Like so many Latin rhythms, the orig­i­nal Merengue per­cus­sion rhythms have been adapted to the drum­set and are to be played by one per­son.
