Guaguanco

Technique by Miguel Monroy // March 30 2012
Guaguanco

For our latest free instructional drum video we take an in-depth look at the Guaguanco drum set goove. Be sure to take advantage of both the transcription and instructional video, which are both included below. Both the instructional video and transcription walk you through the groove one part at a time.  

First you will learn the Palito rhythm on the ride cymbal. Second, we add the bass drum and hi-hat groove with the feet.  Last but not least, we add the tom figures with the left hand. As I mentioned in the video, this is a great groove to learn open handed too.

Most of us don’t get many opportunities to use these grooves in a live setting. That being said, we can still certainly use these types of grooves as opportunities to work on independence, muscle memory, and so much more. Have a great time with this groove and I wish you all the best on your musical endeavors.
