Page o' coordination: Afro 6 - 6/4 feel

Another Afro 6 POC. It's a very rich and rewarding style, which is why I do so bloody much stuff with it. I was surprised to see I had never written up this variation before— it seems obvious. The BD/HH part, which suggests 6/4 or 3/2 across the primary meter of 6/8, is not authentic to the Cuban music that is the source for this groove— not that I am aware of. We're doing this just to open up other possibilities, and increase awareness of the major cross rhythms.

Like I said only yesterday, do the left hand tom moves when you practice this.
