Down Home Special looks at the impact of his recordings, his song writing and production skills. Diddley's recordings were infused with waves of tremolo guitar, and African beats albeit with a blues sound. The "diddley beat" is essentially the clave rhythm, one of the most common bell patterns found in sub-Saharan African music traditions, with a " bom, bom, bom, bom, bom..." back-beat.
