I am not great at all the different Latin styles. [Definitely my weakest area.] I pretty much use Bossa Nova, or more of a Songo.Could anybody just give a basic description of the key parts of any of the Latin styles?

Tommy gives the basic beat. The thing thats messing me up is his left hand pattern. Whenever I play just the hi hat, ride, and bass drum patterns I can play it perfectly. However, when I play the the left hand pattern everything gets messed up. How do I correct this? I've tried going very slow with a metranome, playing each rhythm by itself..etc.
