8th Note Latin Grooves

In my last post I showed you some simple 8th note grooves. Today we are continuing with that theme, but instead of a simple backbeat we are going to place one of the slap tone at an off-beat, or 2 AND, to be precise. This changes the feel into a latin feel. These grooves are simple to play but can be used at various tempos to add some latin flavor to tracks.

Here are the grooves notated:

This time I used a metronome, although it was one of these old ones that don´t really show precise numbers, but the slower tempo is around 90 bpm while the faster one is around 140 bpm.
