Hi , I'm Dan Garcia .
And today we're gonna learn how to play .
Is a Palo flamenco style of flamenco .
It's actually really popular and very sought out because it's very challenging more than anything .
It's fast .
The meter is complicated .
So if you can play , you can be accepted in any kind of flamenco circle .
So it's a good style to learn , but it is a bit challenging , but I'm gonna try to explain it in a way that you're gonna catch it very quick .
So it's played pretty fast but it follows the same uh 12 , no cycle .
So does a couple of differences though .
The accents are in the same places .
So , so that is we were doing 123456789 10 12123 .
I also notice that I'm counting beats 11 12 as one and two just because it's too long to say the syllables .
So 12 , it's 11 12 just so you know , now we were counted much faster .
So 123456789 10 , 12123456781 OK .
So on and so on .
So that's how you count .
And there are many theories on how to count it .
What's the best way ?
What's the right way ?
I think what gets confusing about playing and trying to follow when you're listening to them and when you're learning them is where exactly is beat one .
And so we count 1 to 3 and that one is actually beat one .
That's actually where you start playing .
That's where the usually begin .
But in , it's not , and I think that's what gets a lot of people confused .
Our beat one in is really beat 12 .
That's our , what we feel is beat one and our music , that's where the start , that's where the singer starts .
That's where everything starts .
The only thing is , is , is B 12 , but that's where everything begins .
So let's try to put the together in a very basic way .
We're gonna start by just playing , are a core position on B 12 .
We're gonna go all through the cycle and we're gonna start adding elements that you're gonna build into the cycle .
So we kind of get something similar to sound and then all you have to do is embellish it and you're good to go .
So let's start .
So again , the count is instead of counting , instead of starting the count on 123 , I'm gonna start it on the 11 12 .
And that's how it's usually counted .
Ok , remember 11 12 .
I'm gonna count as 12 .
This is how we start .
12123456789 10 12123456789 10 12 .
Ok , we're gonna go a lot slower at the beginning then we'll speed it up .
So remember 12 B is a real one .
So we're gonna strum A cord on B 12 .
So 12123456789 10 .
1 23456789 10 .
So I encourage you to do that for a while until you get comfortable just coming in those beats .
The next element we're gonna add is the closing of the cycle which is on B 10 .
So on B 10 , I'm gonna do it followed by a mute and every time A B 10 we're gonna close the cycle and it's gonna sound like this .
1212345678921 3456789 10 .
So on B 10 we do pop and we mute the guitar .
One more time .
12123456789 10 1 3456789 .
So again , I encourage you to do this for a good while until it feels natural to you .
The next big point .
In is beat three , beat three is where the harmony changes to the fridge mode .
So we are B one which is B 12 .
We go 12123 .
This is where we go to the B FLAT core .
On three .
So let's include that in our cycle .
1212 56789 10 1 456789 10 1 456789 10 .
Notice also that on B 10 when we close I go back to the tonic core .
To a position .
Ok , so now we gotta have a couple of good spots on the cycle .
Let's keep adding elements .
I'm gonna add a on action six and eight .
Just a regular then we'll spice it up .
So again , one 123456789 10 .
1212 456789 10 .
So you do that for a while until it feels natural .
Now , besides the gold after the , I'm gonna add a couple indexes up .
I'm gonna go with this rhythm .
It's like a 16 note .
Yeah , that's gonna come after my gope on beat six and beat eight .
Let's go for it .
1212 456 by one 12 .
So the next step would be to actually play beat six and eight with the 1212 .
Yeah , and then 1212 six 21 .
At this point basically you're playing a ok .
That's , those are the basic elements of everything else is just adding little embellishments and just grooving with it .
So 1212 course 789 sick .
So have fun playing .
