Kim Atkinson teaches you the patterns from the inside out: “We count and clap the patterns in different ways, and I show you two hand coordination and other exercises to get the feeling into your body. The lesson ends with 25 minutes of clave grooves at different tempos for you to play along with. If you are interested in clave in “6-8″ this is a great lesson for you.”
