The “carreteiro” rhythm is the most important rhythm for tamborim in a samba school bateria. Here’s a lesson on my technique and approach, and some exercises that will be helpful in learning this rhythm, improving tone and rhythm, and building speed. Let me know in the comments if you have questions and sign up for my mailing list for future lessons.

Tamborims, sticks, and other Brazilian percussion available at www.ViradaDrums.com.
