Although the Jazz Upright kit and the Standard Pro have the drum instruments needed for this song, I liked the sound of the Standard Pro better and went with it. If you want to use the Jazz Upright kit, you’ll have to retool the midi source file as the drum notes are different for the two kits.


  • Standard Pro drum set
  • Beta BeatBuddy Manager version 1.6b or newer
  • Firmware v1.8.5 (recommended) or newer

  • Low Rider sng file (OPB = one press bass)
  • Chords and Lyrics
  • Midi source file
  • Joined Midi tracks for bass and drums

  • I’ve taken this song through a couple of iterations and I’m working my way up from the first songs I posted to the forum. This version uses a new MIDI source file; instruments have the velocities reduced for consistency with all of my other songs (posted within the last year); now includes two new versions and they all use the complete range of drum instruments to give the song it’s latin flavor; cheat sheet has also been updated.

Thanks. Liked the earlier versions well enough but after only a few rehearsal attempts we never got around to performing it. I think sometimes a “rhythmically catchy” song can get too heavy repeating the rhythm to pull off live. This is where some clever MIDI work can shine. Latin parts, keys, etc can turn it. Always appreciate the time you take to notate the thought that went into the development.
