Kirsty MacColl's My Affair - Tapping Latin Bass by Sal Cuevas

One of the stars of Tropical Brainstorm, Sal Cuevas, died a year ago in Miami.  For many years part of the legendary Fania All-Stars, he added impossible bass imbellishments to Kirsty’s Latin ride.

Impossible no more?  Andrew Nelson has recently finished a transcription of the original album version’s bass break in My Affair – a bass tapping solo by Sal at 3:30 in the track.   Andrew’s transcription and performance of it can be found here:
