In this lesson we demonstrate the application of the arpeggio and chordal drills outlined at the start of this course, and how these components can be applied to create interesting montuno patterns.
Montunos are typically formed from the I chord, the IV chord, the V chord, back to the IV chord, and then back to the I chord.
We apply chordal motions and arpeggio patterns to this I-IV-V harmonic sequence starting with root position voicings in our right hand and the bass line starting on the root.
There are many variations that can be created from inverting the right hand chord structures and also playing the left hand part starting on the 3rd of the chord.
We explore right hand chordal techniques built from the 3rd, the 5th, and the 6th of each chord, and also how to create contrary motion between the right and left hand when playing montuno patterns.
