Memorize my performance of "Bomba" note-for-note and rhythm-for-rhythm. Concentrate on the durations of the notes and the placement of the notes in time. Learn the specific rhythms. This is a very basic Tumbao.
Memorizing it will help you build upon it and add more anticipations and note choices in the future. You have to start somewhere to begin internalizing the foundation of The Tumbao. This is a great line to have in your arsenal.
