Cuban Latin Guitar is a practical teaching guide for guitarists who want to get familiar with Cuban Latin music. This book focuses on four styles in detail: Son, Cha-Cha-Cha, Bolero, and Danzón. The basic rhythmic patterns such as clave and cinquillo cubano are also explained.
After working with this book and CD, you will have an insight into different finger-picking techniques and accompaniments with a pick that work with each style and will prepare you for playing with a band or a duo. Every chapter closes with an original composition, including full transcriptions of the melody and the accompaniment. Play-alongs, listening examples, and tunes are contained on the CD.
