Salsa, Further Adventures In Afro Cuban Music For Piano is the follow up 150 page book to Carlos Campos's previous work, the highly successful "Salsa And Afro Cuban Montunos For Piano". This book was inspired by the questions asked from many of his students attending his salsa piano class at the Berklee School Of Music and also in his private teaching practice in Los Angeles. During his classes, every problem that arose, presented Carlos with the opportunity to develop new exercises geared towards solving those problems. Rhythmic exercises at the beginning of this book help to develop the inner pulse a common problem of his students. Full arrangements of 4 Salsa songs with all the parts transcribed are included, along with the accompanying CD, or MIDI disk's enabling the student or musician to hear and see the full band arrangement There are transcriptions of different percussion patterns to show how they all work together to create that ultra tight salsa ensemble sound. The many montuno patterns in the first part of the book are written in both 2/3 and 3/2 clave.
