Rumba clave basic coordination — hands only

Per the title, here we have some basic coordination with rumba clave, for hands only. The first set are just logical patterns based on clave— notes in unison with it, before it, after it, or filling in all of the gaps in it. The other sets build some common bell patterns from scratch, one part at a time, so you can be sure the coordination is completely solid.

If you want to add your feet, some obvious default patterns would be:

Hihat: 2 and 4, 1 and 3, or all four beats
Bass drum: & of 2 of both measures, or & of 2 of the first measure.

You could also do the exercises with your right hand + your left foot playing clave.
