This is what every Afro-Cuban musician needs, an easy-to-read script developed using the Time Unit Box System for notation where syllables are lined up and anchored around the beat and strikes of clave and bell. This book allows the person first learning the song to learn the correct percussive placement of syllables, the key missing ingredient in most books of lyrics. Now you can learn the song while simultaneously playing clave or bell.
