Play a clave game online and learn son and rumba clave beats in a minute.
The clave rhythm is the key to popular music. This game tests how well you can play with the clave rhythms.
How to play: Listen to metronome beats and tap/click on the game as instructed.
The son clave has five beats over two bars, as illustrated in the picture.
The son clave beats can be in a 3-2 or 2-3 pattern, where the number tells count of beats in the first and second bars. The melody of music tells which one should be used.
The rumba clave beats differ from the son clave only by one 1/8 beat, as illustrated in the picture.
The rumba clave beats are widely used on contemporary music. The clave is not always played all distintively, but more like a general structure for the music.
