EX­AM­PLE 1 LATIN RHYTHMS – HEAVY SYN­CO­PA­TION

TRACK 4

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

This style of phras­ing, where the whole band plays uni­son rhythms, was a big part of the San­tana band’s early sound. Use the al­ter­nate pick­ing in­di­cated, keep­ing your strum­ming arm con­tin­u­ally mov­ing down and up to en­sure that your play­ing is locked tightly into the groove. If you find this tricky, try clap­ping the rhythms first us­ing a metronome set at a slowe tempo.
