In this “Working Drummers” series, Russ Miller presents the “must-know” that you would be expected to handle on a casual date (sometimes referred to as a “club date”—which could a wedding gig, corporate event, etc.) or a recording session. With extensive experience on every kind of gig from film soundtrack sessions to rock recordings to concerts and casuals, Russ provides these examples from his own experience. You’ll find all these grooves to be useful in many everyday playing situations.

This pack will show you a practical and stylistically accurate approach to the Afro-Cuban substyles, along with clear explanations of the construction of this music.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  1. The Clave and the Bombo
  2. “Salsa” drumset groove
  3. Son Clave Basic Groove (Palito/Cascara)
  4. Songo (Drumset enters Afro-Cuban)
  5. Guaguanco (modern drumset groove)
  6. Assigning Afro-Cuban percussion to the Kit
  7. Performance Example: Afro-Cuban
