Technique by Murray Creed // February 07 2012

The Mambo is a very complex rhythm of Afro Cuban decent. We will try to comp four different percussionists parts; the Bass drum is our Surdo, the Hi-hat foot is our Shaker, the bell of the ride is our Mambo Bell & the Cross Stick and Toms are our Congas. The Ostinato that is being played with our feet implies the Clave. It is best to master each of the following concepts before you put them all together. Good Luck!
