Drum machine rhythm images

Here are some drum machine representations of our rhythms. Use them if they work for you.

In these, the line labeled CP is the tamborim.

TT is the high pitched a-go-go bell.
CB is the low pitched a-go-go bell.

Play Sambingo rhythms online

Here's an experiment. Below are links to a web page that will play the rhythms for you:

Once you get to the page you have to click the Play button in the upper left corner of the page.

And here are the combined rhythms
Rhythm 1
Rhythm 2 

I'm not crazy about how these combined rhythms sound. To my ear I can only hear the tamborim when both play.
