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.
