How to Play Bulerías with One Simple (But Essential) Chord
When flamenco guitar students hear about the compás of Bulerías, they are usually told that this is the “hardest” of all the palos, but is this really the case? Is Bulerías the hardest palo in the flamenco repertoire?
...Well, if you ask me, I’d say that, “it depends.” Sure, the time signature of Bulerías (12/8) might seem strange at first, but if you listen to Bulerías consistently enough, and stick with it (especially by watching my videos and practicing along), you’ll see that it is no more difficult that learning how to strum your guitar in 3/4 time; it’s just all about the accents—mainly, where you place them.
So, watch this video to find out where those accents are placed. Enjoy, and thank you for watching!
