Watch the 2-3 Clave online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 30 Jazz Guitar Rhythms You MUST Know
This next rhythm is "2-3 Clave", and is simply the 3-2 clave but inverted. Cuban music and jazz mixed early on in the 1900's and truly influenced each other's music. In this must know 2-3 clave rhythm, we use a common Latin progression, Em, Am, B7, back to Em.
We use big bar chords for this one. Such a fun, infectious rhythm to play. Notice the fretboard hand is making the rhythm and not just the strumming hand.
