      First, the approval of your posts is only needed for the first posts when they contain an URL. We sadly had to introduce this measure due to spam posters abusing otherwise our forum.

      As for your problem with the timing, I tend to think that this might be related to the idea of listening to the double clap bongo. I don't think I've heard this suggestion before anywhere to identify the music and especially the 1. May I ask where you've got that one from?

      So far for learning more about the structure of salsa music and especially (in my opinion better) ways to find the one, I would suggest to take a look at the following thread:

      Can't hear the beat ---- help please !

      It contains some good information about finding the one, including links to an experiment one of our members did about 'Finding one over the wire' as well as good info about the music structure. Hope this helps you.

      Sorry, I didn't see the reply yet, because the way the forum operates there's no notification for messages on other walls except your own. But I'll be taking a look now.

      My timing is getting off because my understanding of the rhythm is still lacking, mostly issues finding the 1. I find it very hard to identify the double clap bongo in many songs. I've been using the salsa beat machine linked on this forum, which helps and I try to listen to salsa as much as possible.

      I like to sneak peak at other dancers to make sure I got it right :) Once I got it I don't have issues staying on beat most of the time, unless the moves get very complicated or I have a hard time leading the girl.

      I noticed my posts on this forum have to be approved, I wonder if that's for all posts or just the first few made on an account to prevent spam?

      Just read your comment about your timing getting off when dancing. May i ask if it only happens when dancing not with your girlfriend or do why do you think that your timing is getting off? I'm asking because I'm wondering if there are any other threads on the forum that might be interesting and helpful for you with this.
