Great drumless tracks to work on your drum solo timing and creativity during your Bossa Nova drumming and Samba drumming fours and eights. Various tempos from smooth Bossa to up-tempo Samba are included.  Master your Brazilian beats with these expertly crafted backing tracks for drums.

This is the sequel to the my popular Trading Fours and Eights Jazz Swing Drumless Tracks Practice System!

Trading Fours And Eights In Bossa Nova Drumming

The idea of trading fours and eights is simple. Another instrumentalist in the band plays a solo for four our eight measures and the drums play a solo for the same amount of time. This continues through the form of the song and usually ends after 1 or 2 choruses.

Most drummers are terrified when it’s their turn to solo for four or eight measures. They often get lost, not knowing when to start or when to end their solos. This collection will help change all of that in your Samba and Bossa Nova drumming.

3 Mix Options To Keep You On Track

If you aren’t sure how long 4 or 8 measures feels, these drumless tracks will help you feel them naturally.  One mix option is with the bass continuing to play during your soloing.  Listening to the bass during you solo will guide you to start and end your solos on time.

Another mix leaves out the bass to let you develop stronger internal time in your playing. The final mix is bass only from start to finish of each song. This allows you to work on the creativity of your solos and develop rhythmic and musical ideas.

The mix versions again are:

  • With bass playing during the drums fours and eights
  • No bass playing during the drums fours and eights
  • Bass only for the entire song

How To Use This To Improve Your Bossa Nova Drumming

Start off with the bass playing during your drumming fours and eights. When you are comfortable, move to the second mix option and see how your timing is without the bass playing during your fours and eights.  This is a HUGE challenge and a very effective way to quickly improve your drum solo timing.

The third option is so you can solo for entire choruses of the song.  Soloing with a bass groove is one of my favorite ways to solo.
