This video is for the On1 timing (sometimes called L.A. Style Salsa). The On2 salsa timing version of the video is contained within our app Pocket Salsa. The most important aspect
of finding the beat is to make sure you are using the "CLAVE" instrument to determine timing. The tracks played in the salsa video are based on the 2-3 clave timing, which means that your salsa steps 2 and 3 should be taken when you hear the double clave hit ("tap-tap") in the track.
If this was a 3-2 clave (reverse), the double clave hit would mark your steps 6 and 7.
