It’s time to get in the rhythm and turn on your metronome! This lesson will teach you some patterns and techniques you can use when playing Salsa or Cuban Son music. Pay close attention to finger positioning while practicing, as this will make a big difference in your playing. This applies to both your playing hand and your strumming hand, as the ability to mute chords and maintain a steady rhythm is crucial.
As you progress, you may find that the skill level becomes more challenging. But don’t let that discourage you! Once you master these techniques, you’ll be able to enjoy playing your instrument without letting any open strings ring out. This can be a game changer and will allow you to apply these skills to any music you play. Just be patient and ensure you have a quiet place to practice where you won’t disturb or disturb others.
A metronome is an essential tool for this lesson. We’ve included a free metronome in these lesson topics, but if you prefer to use an online metronome, you can click here to access one. Happy practicing!
