In this initial lesson of the latin beat piece, "Mr. Lee's Mambo" - we're going to focus primarily on the groove and on the simple chord pattern that drives the song. We'll also include the first lick of song so you can see how it lays in the groove. At times when we're not actually, physically playing the chord pattern, we'll still be feeling it and keeping it going - silently, in our heads. Either way, we're going to maintain this feel throughout the song. Once you have this simple rhythm in your head, you'll be on your way to becoming a mambo king!
