Today, we are fortunate to have an odd meter conga exercise by Los Angeles percussionist, composer and session player, Brad Dutz. These exercises will give the percussion student an opportunity to continue to work on a balanced sound while playing odd meters. Remember to practice each exercise beginning with both the left and right hands. Practice slowly and continue to work on clear tone production.
For more information about Brad Dutz, his hand percussion method book or the Brad Dutz Quartet, please visit his website.
What are your favorite conga exercises? Post them in the comments.
