6 Rumba

Guitar Techniques - - TOP 10 LATIN STYLES -

THE CUBAN RUMBA style is a fu­sion of mu­sic brought to Cuba by African slaves and Span­ish set­tlers. This style fea­tures the tum­bao bass line and is fan­tas­tic fun to play. Blues mu­si­cians like robben Ford and Al­bert King are fond of the rumba feel and have of­ten in­cor­po­rated it into their ar­range­ments. The rhythms are based around the un­der­pin­ning rumba clave (See Fig 3, p30) which can be played in the 3:2 or 2:3 for­mats.
