Ricardo Monzon - Basic Afro-Cuban Rhythms

May 26, 2022

Ricardo Monzon Basic Afro-Cuban Rhythms. A Berklee professor and Afro Cuban master, Ricardo Monzon breaks down several Afro Cuban rhythms into easily digestible lessons. Monzon covers rhythms on the congas, timbales, bongos, guiro, cowbells, and other hand percussion instruments.
The first few lessons teaches you how to play a clave pattern with your hands. Monzon starts off slowly so it is easy to follow along even if you have no experience playing Afro Cuban rhythms.
Perhaps the best part of the DVD are the conga lessons during which he teaches you how to produce a neat palette of sounds by strike the head on different areas using different parts of your hand. Multiple camera angles and hand close ups make it even easier to follow along. All the lessons are progressive, so what you learn in one lesson you will use in the following lessons. This keeps building and it all comes together when Monzon performs a drumset solo using everything he covered.
Monzon's patient demeanor and thorough explanations make you feel as a personal student of his. The patterns covered are basic enough that a beginner can learn them but interesting enough to keep you focused. This is a great DVD throughout.
