The above Soli parts are played on the first practice CD of the African Drum Rhythms Practice CD set. They are not the most common combination of parts for Soli in Swedish drum and dance classes. More common variations will be listed below.

Bass D---S-S--D--
Bell H-H-H-H-HH-H
Signal f-tt-tt-tt--

The above bass part is definitely the most commonly played for Soli over here. The bell part is also a lot more common than the previous one. The signal is often played using only tone notes - although some drummers may have to use the slap flam from the previous notation to make themselves more clearly heard in a dance class.
