First Melón Volume Goes Live!

Beyond Salsa Piano - The Cuban Timba Piano Revolution - by Kevin Moore - Vol. 6Volume 6 of Beyond Salsa Piano is the first of four volumes on Iván "Melón" Lewis, the cult-legend timba hero who played piano with Issac Delgado in late-90s.

Volume 6 includes extensive analyses of all the tumbaos of No me mires a los ojos and La vida sin esperanza, along with Melón's history and discography, and a general analysis of his style and the style of the amazing 1997 incarnation of Issac Delgado's band, with Alain Pérez on bass and Pepe Rivero on teclado.

Special Note to buyers of Volume 5 - Introduction to Timba: If you didn't receive an email, please check your spam filter. Reader Keith Johnson found a couple nasty errors and provided a very valuable enhancement. All have been integrated into Revision 1.1 and you can update both audio and eBook for free.

Volume 5 - Timba - Now Available March 1, 2010

Beyond Salsa Piano - The Cuban Timba Piano Revolution Volume 5 - by Kevin MooreThis is the behemoth - the longest of the series - a summary of 11 years of timba obsession.

2010-03-01 Update!
Volume 5 audio and eBook is now available on Lainpulsemusic.com.

Chapter 1: What is Timba?
- well, you guys already know that answer.

Chapter 2: History and Listening Tour
- this picks up where the online book, The Roots of Timba, left off: with Revé's Suave suave, Van Van's Aquí el que baila gana, and of course NG La Banda's En la calle. It tells the stories of all the major bands, highlighting the best material.

Chapter 3: Ten Timba Piano Innovations - here, we isolate the ten important ways that timba piano differs from its predecessors.

Chapter 4: Estudios - these are 32 tumbaos, all on the same chord progression, created to demonstrate the innovations in various combinations.

Chapter 5: Timba Gears - at last, the explanation of why you can learn Paulito's gear system and still be confused about Charanga Habanera - it's the "general theory of timba gears", explaining how everything fits together into one nice, logical, and endlessly creative and flexible combinación perfecta!

Then, after the FAQ and Glossary, we get to the craziest part, the Timba Harmony Appendix, which takes hundreds of timba coros and analyzes their chord progressions in Roman numerals.

After this ... the deluge ... note-for-note Melón transcriptions in large quantities in Volumes 6, 7, 8 and 9. I haven't actually written Volume 9, I have to admit, but 6, 7 and 8 are done and will be out soon, and if anyone can play all the tumbaos in those 3 before I finish Volume 9, you'll be ready for the big time.

Finally - get ready for Beyond Salsa Percussion - that's all I'll say about that for now, but expect something in first half of 2010 (knock on wood).
