All “more cowbell” jokes aside, this instrument is the real deal, and here’s some groovy loops you can use in your production. Its two different cowbells (a low pitched handmade Cuban mambo bell, and a small vintage Ludwig bongo bell from the 1950’s) played in different ways at many different tempos.
Coming from Cuban/Latin traditions, the cowbell typically finds itself in music that is felt “in two.” So naturally, these grooves were recorded in cut time and 6/8. You’ll find rhythms consisting of a pulse-in-two, 1e+, 1+a, the Cuban cascara, the Brazilian partido alto, 6/8 Cuban pattern, and various improvised loops on both cowbells in both cut and 6/8. Dig it!
