Latin America has a rich musical culture with the guitar often at the center of attention. The guitar parts feature intricate right-hand rhythms enhanced with rich harmonies and beautiful melodies.
Jesús Hernandez’s Latin American Guitar Guidebook explores this vibrant musical landscape by examining eight of the most popular styles from Latin America.”We'll learn how to play the swinging rhythmic patterns of the Merengue from Venezuela and the Dominican merengue. We'll dig into the Cumbia, a courtship dance from Columbia, and the Vals from Peru, also accompanied by a Cajón. Mexico has given us the Ranchera, frequently played by mariachi bands. Many of these styles are made for dancing, like the Cueca, originating in Chile, Argentina and Bolivia. And of course, the Samba and the Bossa Nova from Brazil.”
