Watch the Bomba online guitar lesson by David Santos from Focus On: Latin Bass

The piano rhythm in this track is called a Montuno and like the bass line is also referred to as a Tumbao in certain circles.

Concentrate on locking in with the piano part, focusing on your rhythms. In the first section lock your straight eighths in with the band on beats two and four. The second section utilizes the dotted eighth-sixteenth rhythm. Practice the chromatic lines slowly. Look for the subtle "long" note in the second section of "Bomba" and let it ring just right, as it's an example of a subtle variation of duration to explore in your future bass lines.
