LOS ANGELES, CA — November 21, 2007 — Alfred and the National Guitar Workshop are delighted to present this all-new Cuban guitar songbook in the favorite Guitar Atlas series featuring guitar styles from around the globe.

Guitar Atlas: Cuba offers an in-depth look at the signature sound of Cuban music. At the heart of Cuban music lies the clave, the very definition of Cuban groove. Often mystifying to learn, Jeff Peretz breaks down the fundamental rhythm of the clave in Guitar Atlas: Cuba. Now any guitarist, even those who don’t play Cuban music, can learn the clave and improve their sense of rhythm and syncopation. The book also explores the African and European cultural influences that shaped modern Cuban music, as well as the political events of the 20th century. Learn about the different styles of music from all over the island, the musicians who popularized them, and many unique Cuban instruments including the tres, botija, marimbula, and other percussion instruments. Plus, the included CD demonstrates all the examples and compositions featured in the book.

Guitar Atlas: Cuba is now available as a book and CD set for just $14.95.

Other Guitar Atlas titles include Guitar Atlas: Africa, Guitar Atlas: Brazil, Guitar Atlas: Celtic, Guitar Atlas: Flamenco, Guitar Atlas: India, Guitar Atlas: Italy, and Guitar Atlas: Middle East.
