00:00:27
hi there my name is Michael Niren now
00:00:30
welcome to this lesson about solos how
00:00:33
to start a solo how can you open up a
00:00:36
solo you are playing a rhythm in salsa
00:00:39
and then it's your turn for a solo or
00:00:43
your part that you have a solo how can
00:00:45
you start there are many ways and you
00:00:51
can start with with a roll you can
00:00:55
immediately grab the attention of the
00:00:58
complete audience by I always like to
00:01:03
start a little bit smaller because if I
00:01:09
show my my fare to all city and my my
00:01:16
speed and the difficult things in the
00:01:19
first part then the tension is already
00:01:22
there and then you you have to start and
00:01:24
it will only go down this most of the
00:01:27
time I start small there are different
00:01:32
ways to to go come from a rhythm into
00:01:37
the solo the first thing what you can do
00:01:41
is for in for instance is you start
00:01:45
playing the rhythm and there's a
00:01:48
variation it's like this
00:01:51
[Music]
00:01:57
this variation you can make a slip
00:02:02
before so you have
00:02:05
[Music]
00:02:09
and from this variation I start my solo
00:02:14
so I play the same I play in a slow
00:02:17
tempo
00:02:18
I played the rhythm then I'm into my
00:02:38
solo with this everything between the
00:02:44
beads so it's so you have this variation
00:02:46
this so normally you play two overtones
00:03:02
but now I play one slap an opto then
00:03:08
palm fingers again and then from there
00:03:19
from there I can go away from the rhythm
00:03:22
and start building up my solo and also
00:03:27
with this extra slap not palm face but
00:03:29
palm slap and you think well it's pretty
00:03:38
simple it is pretty simple but you can
00:03:42
build up the energy and it's not already
00:03:46
at the top of the solo and it goes it's
00:03:51
a little bit how can you say this I
00:03:57
don't know the English word like a
00:03:59
secret you start but very small and you
00:04:02
build up Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck
00:04:03
and you when it's when you play this
00:04:06
faster it has power this already has
00:04:09
power so when you play
00:04:12
[Music]
00:04:21
boom and you're off and from there on
00:04:25
you can point go to the repertoire of
00:04:29
solos that you have yeah so this is one
00:04:32
way another way is it's also a variation
00:04:37
it starts actually with a base then palm
00:04:42
fingers muffle then a slap
00:04:46
again palm things open again palm
00:04:50
fingers and then you go to the tomba so
00:04:54
you play so you have the rhythm the nice
00:05:31
thing is that the the right hand is
00:05:35
still on the beat and it's not far away
00:05:38
it's not directly very complicated and
00:05:42
the left hand you have to practice it
00:05:44
that you can play fastest so for
00:05:51
instance when you do this two times but
00:05:53
then you change you will for instance I
00:05:57
will leave out the tumba and I will play
00:06:00
three things so first I will play
00:06:04
[Music]
00:06:14
so to be it is all most of the time in
00:06:17
for and then I divide it in three so it
00:06:21
brings more tension and in a faster
00:06:24
tempo it it sounds pretty excited so if
00:06:29
you play like and you go away you start
00:06:45
your solo so this is also a way that you
00:06:48
are staying close to the rhythm and then
00:06:50
you start pouring building up another
00:06:55
way is for instance in the last lesson
00:06:59
about flames I explained I showed you a
00:07:04
variation that is often played in salsa
00:07:07
this variation this variation you can
00:07:18
also start with this variation and
00:07:20
repeat it and then you start your solo
00:07:24
so for instance you can go everywhere
00:07:44
you want or most of the players they
00:07:48
have a repertoire of things techniques
00:07:52
and solos that they can always play
00:07:55
wherever they are at whatever time you
00:07:58
can wake them up in the middle of the
00:08:00
night and you say hey point yes your
00:08:02
solo from from the bed you can't blow
00:08:05
Popo
00:08:06
you play your repertoire so this is also
00:08:12
an example because this is actually in
00:08:15
the rhythm
00:08:17
[Music]
00:08:24
[Music]
00:08:30
you can go wherever you want and this so
00:08:34
these are three examples that are not
00:08:38
far away from the basic rhythm and then
00:08:41
you can go to your solo I like these
00:08:47
things more because I don't like it for
00:08:50
instance to immediately start with
00:08:55
difficult things or fear towards things
00:08:58
like without an announcement it's like I
00:09:03
can also start make solos like this and
00:09:13
go pee but it's like it's not the top
00:09:20
but it's already somewhere at this level
00:09:24
and if you have only this part that you
00:09:27
can play above you start here I like to
00:09:32
start here under and build up more
00:09:35
tension more tension more fit or as a
00:09:37
team or poom poom-poom because if I
00:09:40
start already there most of the time it
00:09:42
will go down in tension and you will
00:09:45
lose the audience or the inspiration so
00:09:49
I like to start small but it's personal
00:09:53
it's very personal and then build up so
00:09:57
I hope you can use one of these three
00:10:00
examples and just practice just practice
00:10:05
this I have a a percussion play along
00:10:14
track with someone to know and perhaps
00:10:18
someone to know is too fast to to
00:10:21
practice but if you have those examples
00:10:26
you master it you can practice with
00:10:28
these percussion player long tricks
00:10:30
dress there's also already a track with
00:10:34
Guajira and Guajira is very slow and
00:10:38
this here you can practice in a slow
00:10:42
tempo don't do need to do dance don't be
00:10:46
the duty to to and so on or this other
00:11:07
one
00:11:10
[Music]
00:11:29
you can practice this with this Guajira
00:11:32
trek and it's a slow tempo but you have
00:11:36
control over the beat and it's not too
00:11:39
fast okay I wish you good luck and in
00:11:43
other lessons I will show you more
00:11:45
tricks that you can use in solos see you
00:11:49
next time bye bye
