Watch the Week 4: Right hand online guitar lesson by Doug Munro from The 8 Essential Latin Guitar Styles
The salsa is a type of Afro-Cuban dance music. We're going to be learning a simple montuno pattern to play over a 2-3 clave. Montunos are rhythmic and harmonic patterns first played by a guitar like instrument called a tres and later by the piano. Along with the video, I have also attached an MP3 to practice with as well as PDF's for the chord changes and the montuno with TAB.
Make sure that you go and listen to some salsa recordings. You can start with Tito Puente and go from there. Enjoy!
