This course breaks down and demonstrates some basic common conga patterns and shows you how to use your drum set rudiments on the Congas.
Alex Acuňa is one of the masters of combining Latin Percussion and drum set, while being fully accomplished at both. In this unique series of 13 lessons, he shows you how the rudiments can be applied to congas, giving every drummer a foundation for becoming a well-rounded percussionist.
From Alex’s early days with Weather Report (appearing on albums Black Market and Heavy Weather) to his most recent Acuňa-Hoff-Mathisen DVD (available in the DrumChannel.com store), Alex continues to be one of the most respected drummer/percussionists in the world. The list of artists he has played with is too long to mention but some examples include: Paul McCartney, Whitney Houston, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.
