Wilcoxon rhumba studies in 5/4

Here I have rewritten a page from the Wilcoxon Drum Method, which I've been using a lot lately. I've put his "swing or rhumba" studies (p. 31, two-measure syncopation and accent studies in 4/4) into 5/4. The book offers a lot of insight into the background and methods of the swing and early bebop drummers- they all worked through Wilcoxon- and I'll be giving it a full review soon.
