Notation:

The different symbols stand for the different strokes. The four lines represent the 4 congas, high (up) to low (low)

 

Basic Guaguanco on 2 Congas

The first 3 examples are different options to play the Guaguanco on 2 Congas. The first one is simple, the other two use the floating hand technique. The Guaguanco is usually started with a pickup on the 4th upbeat.

Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Guaguanco on 3 Congas

Now let's add a 3rd Conga. We can create melodies with the accents of the rhythm, placing them on different drums.

Example 1:
congas_04.png

Example 2:

This variation uses muffled strokes instead of opens for the high main accents.

Example 3:

Example 4:
congas_07.png

 

The following variation uses muffled strokes. These ones are not played completely in rhythm, but somewhere between 16th and triplets.

Example 5:
congas_08.png

 

Guaguanco on 4 Congas

let's add a 4th drum and see how we can expand the melodies.

Example 1:
congas_09.png

Example 2:

congas_10.png

Example 3:
congas_13.png

Example 4:

Example 5:
