The Percussionist Dancer: Introduction

Welcome to the end of the beginning.

This tutorial is about finding the two remaining beats of salsa's music. It is also about how you should take part in playing them.

Putting what we learn here together with what we've already learned about the open tones and slap stroke will allow you to navigate your way through a bar (or measure) of tumbao moderno - a bar being the smallest independent rhythmic unit of music.

That brings you, at the end of this tutorial, to the first state of independence regarding salsa's rhythm. It's quite an achievement.

And the knowledge shall set you free…
