Flamenco Rhythm {Bulerías con palmas}


Today I am back with another video for the bulerías rhythm. 

Here we have Manuel 'El Marmol' once again playing basic compas on the guitar and Jose is accompanying him with palmas sordas and palmas abiertas.

If you need to brush up on your palmas technique you can do that by going back to these two posts.

Palmas Abiertas

Palmas Sordas

José is marking the base rhythmic pattern for bulerías but with a slight variation. His accents are on 12, 3, 7, 8 and 10. He occasional goes into a little contratiempo working on the off-beat.

12  1  2  3  4  5  6  8  9  10  11  12....

He is also marking these accents with his feet so you can hear clearly. 

See if you can practice your palmas with this video, when things get a bit faster it is important not to tense the shoulders and neck because it will make you very tired very quickly and you won't be able to play with dynamics of your palmas and truly accompany the guitar.
