Drum! Presents: Stanton Moore – The New Orleans Guaguanco

This is a hybrid I came up with by mixing a New Orleans mambo with the Cuban guaguancó [Ex. 1]. It’s a fun groove to play and you can experiment with where you want to use it. For example, you could use it in a drum or percussion solo or breakdown. Or you can use it to create a different texture for a part of a tune or behind someone else’s solo.
