PALM-TIP BOOT CAMP PREVIEW LESSON

key exercises for building your palm-tip dexterity

10 VIDEO LESSONS


In this course, we're going to spend some serious time developing our Palm-Tip Technique in both hands. Combining what we've learned in prior courses, we'll explore how this simple motion changed the way the instrument is played today.

With the contributions of legends like Tata Güines, Jose Luis Quintana "Changuito," and Giovanni Hidalgo, the palm-tip has  evolved in to the centerpiece of modern technique, on the conga. Giving us a platform to develop speed and dexterity, while opening up a world of rhythmic and melodic possibilities. 

In This Course We'll Learn:

  • About the evolution of the palm-tip

  • Patterns for developing our palm-tip in both hands

  • About the concept of a "thread"

  • Some challenging exercises based on "la mano secreta"

  • The ins and outs of some Giovanni-style "baqueteos"

  • And how to create some amazing rhythms and patterns

Let's get to it!!!
