The 3/2 afro-cuban son clave is a great inspiration. Rockers have made great use of it in songs like Desire (U2), Magic Blue (The Who) or Women are Smarter (Greatful Dead) to name just a few. This clave is what you actually play in the famous Bo Diddley beat. It also can be used in a NOrleans fashion with the bass drum playing the clave unisono with the snare drum. Any other thoughts?
