In this lesson, Michael Pluznick will cover basic accompaniment parts for playing in the 6/8 time signature in West African drumming. Most of the rhythms and rhythm arrangements played in West African djembe drumming from Guinea, Mali, Senegal and the surrounding areas are in 4/4, 6/8 and occasionally in 9/8 time signature. Sometimes the rhythms in 4/4 have 6/8 parts and sometimes a rhythm in 6/8 can be pulled into 4/4.
In this lesson you will learn basic accompaniment parts in the 6/8 time. We call these basic accompaniment parts "Passport parts" and that's because you can play them in a variety of rhythms.
