In this supplement to Nicki Denner’s Afro-Cuban piano lesson in the December 2011 issue, Ex. 5
(the print article contains Examples 1 through 4) plays a tumbao
through a more involved chord progression. Notice the use of harmony between the right and left hands. Try harmonizing the octaves in the right hand by adding the note a tenth below in the left.
