We could morph into a discussion of "bulerías crossover", a phenomenon I've observed at large noisy fiestas where, when there's no guitar to reinforce the character of the palo, bulerías becomes tangos, with no break in the rhythm...and no one seems to notice! Now *that's* where twos become crucial...

Ask him about "Driving over Lemons", or is it "Parrot in the Pepper Tree" by Crhis Stewart, I believe he and his school appear in this book.

Oh No!

This is about all my head can take at the moment!

I would definitely like to know more about it though, 'cos I've heard the same phenomenon.
I think I mentioned it a few months ago when I said I had been listening to something from Ondajerez and couldn't work out if it was a Bulerias or Tangos.
It was like an "auditory illusion" like the visual illusion whereby a "wire" box appears to jump back and forth.

But later, Estela...por favor, later..
Let's try at least to get some kind of conclusion to this 2's thing first!

cheers

Ron

I think it's an amazing piece of guitar work, but I think I see what Estela is saying.
Todd is thinking very strongly in 12's and it works out in 12's perfectly.
But I have to agree, that you can't tap 2's to it.


Though I enjoyed it, I must admit I'm begining to see it too. He's playing too fast and loose with timing, consistently, for it to sit with a '2' pulse.

Probably not the best example of his buleria really, I have a copy of an earlier version of one of the falsetas in that, and its MUCH 'safer' in terms of the compas.

It's certainly possible to stay in compás without the two beat, but it takes tremendous concentration, discipline and the ability to sense the lengthy pulse that takes place from the beginning of one 12, to the next, as well as the inherent unevenness of switching back and forth from twos to threes. You're never really in control and the structure tends to shake and shudder...in a guitar solo this is a minor annoyance, but with singers and dancers it's an impossibility. Powerful second and third parties can "keep you in compás", but it's very limiting to be dependent on others for rhythmic guidance.

Hi Zata,

quote:

I still don't understand about the stopping problem...you mean like when you go piss? You'd stop on the 4th or 10th beat, never five. I don't think anyone ever had a problem stopping (?).


No, I might not have explained '5' very well, you have to go back to earlier posts.
By 5, I'm refering to compas beat 5.

12(1) 1 2 3(2) 4 5 6(3) 7 8(4) 9 10(5) = Remate

Hope this clarifies.

Cheers
Jim.

I see how you're counting, but then what do you call it when the remate comes on natural beat 4? Two and one third?

Hi Peter,

Yes, this is 'al golpe' mentioned earlier in posts. PdL used this a lot on earlier videos when you hear his foot tap away.

Cheers

Exactly, my point. This (12) - 1 - 2 - (3) - 4 - 5 that Paco pats his foot to highlights the threes and sixes in the compas.


First of all, we must be careful with the term "bulerías al golpe" which is the cante form "soleá por bulería". Only around Sevilla is the term sometimes (rarely) understood to refer to this old-style bulería compás which Paco still pats with his foot, no matter how modern his falsetas become...and there's no conflict of course.

In this format, beats 6 (12) and 3 (9) are never accented, which is why the old desplantes (which Mariquita may still do) began on 6 (12), because it marked a radical and unmistakable change. As the longer phrase became popular and beat twelve dethroned beat one, desplantes were shifted to begin on beat one, again, to mark a clear difference. This is not speculation, the shift took place in my lifetime and I watched dance teachers trying to explain the "new" desplantes to confused students.

Hi Simon

Just downloading it. Emilio is coming round later so if we have time before tonight's soundcheck we'll listen to it and get back to you with some feedback. Emilio's playing tonight at the Centro de Interpretación and its also Harold's birthday so we shall have a big long celebration fiesta tonight.

RE: 2s in bulerias examples (in reply to zata

Wow! This has got to be the best thread ever on this forum. Try the following with any Bulerias. You might want to practice a bit first, because like Ron said it´s like rubbing your tummy and patting your head at the same time. I think you´ll soon see what Estela is talking about.

C=Clap F=Foot (Disregard the '-' for some reason you can't put in a blank space.)

12 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
- - CC - C C - C C -- C C
- F - F - F - F - F -- F
12 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This palmas pattern may not always be entirley appropriate, but I don´t think it´s ever completely wrong either. I´ll have to check, but I think I picked this up from Chuck Keyer´s Flamenco Course some 25 years ago.

Phil

PS. Be careful with that 'Bulerias al Golpe' term. In Jerez it does not mean what you think it means.

RE: 2s in bulerias examples (in reply to Ron.M

sorry to bring up a super old thread.. but this is really really interesting reading.

I brought it up for all the newer (aka me) foro users to read.

Ron do you still encourage us to tap bulerias to this?

cheers
quote:

ORIGINAL: Ron.M

Nope, Jim and Andy,
That's not what I'm meaning...
I mean just tapping your foot on beats 2,4,6,8,10 and 12.
Regardless if the compás is accenting 3 or 7 or anything else.
eg..when I hit the heavily accented 3 in Bulerias chording compás, my foot is up, not down.
So thinking of it as two pairs, (which is useful), it goes.

2,4,6
8,10,12

ie six equally spaced beats covering the whole 12 beat cycle.

I don't know how to explain it any other way!
Just tapping on the "even" beats.
Nothing more exotic than that!

cheers

Ron

Well, I'm by no means an expert, HolyEvil...just a student myself, but I still find it the easiest way to keep a constant flow going.
Also, you see the professional guitarists do it on YouTube from time to time...so if it's good enough for them...

The only difference with me now is that while my foot is going 2,4,6 etc..I can also "hear" the 1,2 * 4,5 "takataka" beat going inside my head.

The 12, 3, 6, 8, 10 is sometimes good for working out falsetas in advance, but I find it very unreliable for generally keeping time.

cheers,

Ron

RE: 2s in bulerias examples (in reply to XXX

I thought this was a NEW bulerias by ToddK. I was laughing at the "Todd-free zone" comments and then I realized the dates of the posts..... jeeeesh. And then come to find my ugly mug right there at the end of the thread bitchin about palmas

I was looking forward to laying into to ToddK while he is on his period.

The most neatly organized material is in Spanish, about 8000 words so far, but it's for the Peña Bulería in Jerez and can't be publicized until mid-September.

Could anyone point me to the material on bulerias that Estela is referring to above? It does not matter if it is in Spanish or English. Apparently published in September 2004 or later.

(YES YES, I am resurrecting an old thread)

I'd really appreciate any pointers. THANK YOU!

That discussion was really a long time ago, I didn't even know I would still receive notifications.

Thirteen years have passed, flamenco has evolved...it's hard to imagine anyone not beating/feeling twos in bulerías. The study I referred to years ago was eventually published in Sevilla Flamenca in a slightly fanciful form, not so analytical. Unfortunately I can't give a precise date, maybe 2005.

Since then I've written a great deal about bulerías. You might like an article of mine that was published in the magazine Acordes. It was written over ten years ago, some concepts may have become outdated...or maybe not.

Sorry...I couldn't figure out how to convert the file to a supported format.

Thank you so much! So you are still lurking here (your last post was from 2014 so I worried you do not visit anymore) :-) Wonderful!

P.S. Looks like the bulerias article was published in April 2005. Thanks again!

Brother, understanding your curiosity about such an article however, if you read back to page 1 you might pick up on the fact the author of said article argued assuredly that ToddK (of all people, whose audio is gone now I recall was playing a perfect note for note recreation of Tomatito's Paseo de los castaños first couple falsetas to backing track) was simply out of compas. Let me repeat that... the article about compas authored by someone that can't discern what was perfectly in compas is the article you want to read?
