Break 3

I've put the whole Break 3 sequence into the Monkey Machine online drum machine, just like I did with the 6/8 rhythm. To try it out, here's what to do:

1. Select and copy the text below.
2. Go to

3. In the new window, select File/Import beat from text... on the menu bar

4. Past the text you copied into the text area & click the Import
button at the bottom.

You should hear the whole Break 3 sequence: some bars of Rhythm 1, the whistle signals (played on a cymbal since Monkey Machine doesn't have a whistle), Break 3 itself (cerdos and the rhythm for the Samba, Samba Hey! chant), the whistle signals to switch to Break 2, Break 2 itself and then back to Rhythm 1. (and repeat).

Have a listen and let me know what you think.
