tequila drum solo


"Uncle Larry"
Hey, I'm looking for some advise. One of my bands is doing Tequila, and they want a drum solo. I really never played or listened that style of music much, and I was looking for ideas (philisophical or otherwise) Any thoughts? I don't want to do a rock type drum solo to this type of song.


IMO, calls for a Latin groove, maybe a songo beat based solo. Definitely not just rock, you'd spoil the tune.

I could use it as an excuse to employ timbales, mini or standard and agogo/cow bells.
