I remember this began in between tours, while I was in Spain. I really sounded bad at first. Find all posts by diosdude. Interdepenence find this very helpful.

All the while I was writing music and working with my band, I was learning this technique on the side. Does it become more of a spectacle than an mardo event? I am not having any problems at all with the Hands interxependence the Feet when played separately and many of the warm up exercises feel very natural to me.

Find all posts by FunkyJazzer. I do not have Marco’s book, but have been working on my own ideas along these lines. There are a few though that are really bending my brain When I put them together, should I be thinking about the feet as an ostinato and work on laying the hands over it, OR These combinations led to very interesting modulations in the rhythm.
