Play-Along CD #2: Afro Cuban Clavés and Bells

Play-Along CD #2 Afro Cuban Clav´s and Bells Front RGB


I created the loops on this CD to support and inspire you to practice playing, and playing to, fundamental Afro Cuban rhythmic elements, while reinforcing universal rhythmic principles, while playing any instrument.  Some of these rhythmic skills include:

° Feeling and internalizing the pulse of a rhythm
° Playing a solid Groove at any tempo and volume
° Playing with the spaces between the pulse
° Creating rhythmic cycles and patterns
