Description

It’s time to infuse your playing with a little hot-blooded romance! The Total Latin Guitarist is an exciting journey into the world of Latin guitar playing. The book begins by teaching you soloing and accompaniment techniques used in all genres of Latin music, as well as the rhythmic backbone of many Latin styles, the clave. You'll learn to play in the Afro-Cuban styles of salsa, rumba, guaguancó, cha-cha-cha, mambo, and songo. You'll get a solid introduction to the Brazilian styles of choro, samba, batucada, partido alto, bossa nova, baião, and frevo. Other Latin styles featured are meringue (Dominican Republic); calypso, soca, and bachata (Trinidad); tango (Argentina); and ranchera, mariachi, norteño/conjunto, and tejano (Mexico). Aside from all of the important techniques involved with playing these styles, you will also learn all of the relevant theory. This book is for guitar players who are already familiar with the basics, but are looking to expand their vocabulary and repertoire in new and exciting ways. The CD features a full band demonstrating the examples in the book.
