Alfredo Rolando Ortiz' three Rhythmic Collection books introduce various rhythmic styles from North and South America and Europe in a very "user friendly" manner using famous traditional melodies. He includes well-known tunes as "Famous Traveling Melodies," showing how they would sound in various styles and rhythms. The three volumes are not progressive. Each one includes easy, intermediate, and more advanced pieces. There are some fingerings. All titles and explanations are written in both English and Spanish.

PDF Download: This PDF is Volume 1, and its "Traveling Melodies" are London Bridge, Yankee Doodle and Ode to Joy.
Danza de Luzma and Llano have easy and advanced versions. Un vals para sonar has easy and advanced versions, and also an arrangement for harp or piano and voice. Most of the pieces are in 1 flat, others are in the key of C or 1 sharp. Some fingerings are included. 65 pages.

mp3 Download: With the companion mp3s you can listen to the music to "get the right feel" of those wonderful Latin rhythms! Some pieces are divided in sections to facilitate listening and learning specific parts. A few examples of "variations" and additional verbal instructions are included. "Easy versions" are included, but not the "advanced."
