SOURCE: has recently made public a video guitar lesson from master instructor Jon MacLennan. In this guitar lesson, now available on, Jon MacLennan teaches a guitar lesson on a Montuno style Latin rhythm.

(PRWEB) August 23, 2014

MacLennan demonstrates this Latin Montuno style Rhythm that alternates between an A7 and a D7 as follows; starting on an A7 triad that consists of the 5th fret of the 4th string with first 2nd, 5th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and 5th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger. Jon continues by moving the bass note on the 4th string down one half step, but keeping the same 5th fret notes on the other two strings which makes the D7 chord. MacLennan plays the riff using the hybrid picking technique by picking the 4th string with his guitar pick and the other strings with his fingers. The timing and rhythm of this Latin riff are a little complex, but MacLennan does a great job of explaining it so that even the novice guitarist can play along. Guitar TABs are available for this easy rhythm guitar lesson at

A Montuno is a musical term used to describe many different aspects of Cuban music and literally means from the mountain.
