EX­AM­PLE 3 LATIN RHYTHMS – UNI­SON RIFF

TRACK 8

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

Firstly, you’ll no­tice that the bass ac­cents beat four, ef­fec­tively play­ing the har­mony in the fol­low­ing bar a beat early (which is mir­rored in the riff). This is very typ­i­cal of Afro-Cuban mu­sic and you’ll prob­a­bly find this feels un­nat­u­ral at first, es­pe­cially if you’ve never played in this style be­fore. Prac­tise at a slower tempo (again us­ing a metronome) be­fore you play along to the track.
