In this group of exercises you will work with your two hands to reach independence (it is important that you sing the subdivisions like Horacio does). Your right hand plays the Clave in the Wood Block, the left hand will play each one of the 16 Sixteenth notes. In this video you have two exercises with the 13th Sixteenth note of the bar and later with the 14th Sixteenth note of the bar.
The magic compass: thirteen. 1, 2, 3, 4… Then fourteen. 1, 2, 3, 4… This exercise is part of the group “Clave Control Exercises” from 05015 to 05023. We are studying separately each one of the subdivisions that we have practiced before. We will begin with sixteenth notes and a Rumba Clave pattern. To make a distinction between what we have studied before, now we will “sing” the subdivisions and we will use our hand to apply the different sixteenth notes in each time of the bar.
