Son Montuno reversed pattern – 8082 – E

12 November, 2017 605 34 No Comments


Fifth Son Montuno exercise but this time “Reverse pattern.” Giovanni reverses the rhythmic concept with a serie of beats: Hembra, martillo, fingers, half palm and ghost, to complete this pattern. Notice the type of accentuation, especially the Clave.



Another variation, like a third variation for that kind of marcha is done like this. That is comfortable to when you play together with a conga player, with a congero, for Son Montunos, that are only Congas and Bongos, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3… It’s so important to put your mind, to put your five senses on the correct spot, ok? We have to be focused and alert, all the time, so with the clave when we do… that’s the effect, right? We do it like this , 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4… Slow, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4…
