Improvise on the piano in Latin music settings. This book breaks down the harmonic, rhythmic and melodic techniques used by the greatest artists of Cuban piano music, such as Rubén Gonzáles (Buena Vista Social Club), Pedro “Peruchín” Jústiz, and Lilí Martínez Griñán. The exercises and play-along recording will help you orient yourself to Afro-Cuban grooves, and develop a sense of how to hear and use the clave as the central grounding force behind your solos and accompaniments. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
