Learn to play Rumba with Afro-Cuban flavor! In this book, beginners learn basic timing, syncopation, and improvisation. Intermediate to advanced drummers learn to throw down some of the funkiest Afro-Cuban Licks on their favorite drum, whether it is a Conga, Bongo, Timbales, Traps, etc... The revolutionary self-teaching method in this book brings together two different learning approaches for Afro-Cuban drumming. The first approach is to learn by way of reading written notation; the second is to learn solely by listening and feeling. The method simultaneously incorporates the various senses in teaching different improvisation patterns. This approach helps to ingrain the learning process at a deeper psychological level. Each expression can be played with the bass drum downbeats provided on the companion online audio. This helpful learning aid will ensure proper pulse and timing. After mastering each expression with the bass drum playing downbeats, the Guaguanco rhythm is introduced to further the learning process. Includes access to online audio.
