Hi -
I’ve been working on clave independence with my right hand (not with my left foot), so I came up with my own set of exercises to get me going.  The exercises focus on gaining independence with your left hand while maintaining clave with your right hand and playing a version of the tumbao bass drum pattern with your right foot.  I thought I would share these exercises with any of you who are interested… is a link to the blog post that includes a downloadable PDF…..

Hope it’s helpful.
