    A new week is upon us once again! :) Today's wake 'n break is a two bar pandeiro groove that voices the 3/2 Son clave and utilizes both closed and open tones. Although this is being played on a Brazilian pandeiro, I didn't go for the traditional Brazilian feel. It almost has more of a second...

    Today's wake 'n break is a "boom chick" groove (which refers to the foot ostinato) that utilizes a shaker made of flattened bottle caps and a rare Hammerax mini Boomywang draped over my snare drum. Another unique thing is that the shaker is also being used as a stick. Taking the feet first...
