Basic chord prog. for accompaniment 

I was wondering if there's a resource where I could find the basic chord progression for accompaniment?

Most books and videos seem to only show solos and falsets. I would really love to start focusing on the compases.

Say you decide to accompany baile or cante, what's the most typical compases you play?

i.e.
Solea: E, F, Am, G C7
Buleria: A Bb Dm C7 Bb A

encuentro dvd merengue de cordoba 1 and 2, the technique is not so good, but the compas and accompaniment is solid, post-paco-trad (but not old school), and fairly basic

Here's how to play the basic Solea letra for cante ( 3 or 4 lines)
You'll have to listen to recordings to get the phrasing right.

1,2,3, - rasgueado on E add b2
4,5,6, - silent, maybe golpe on 6
7,8,9, - strum on E or E7
10,11,12 - A minor
1,2,3, - A minor, G, F
4,5,6, - you can be silent or play a remate on E
7,8,9, - F, E, F
10,11,12 - Remate on E

Play all that twice.
THEN

1,2,3, - Rasgueado on G7
4,5,6, - Silent, maybe golpe on 6
7,8,9, - strum G7 or arpeggio walking up to..
10,11,12 - C major
1,2,3, - A minor, G, F
4,5,6, - you can be silent or play a remate on E
7,8,9, - F, E, F
10,11,12 - Remate on E

This part may be played once or twice.

Hope that helps to get you started.

There are so many variations in the accompanying cante.
Deteresas solea is one way, but there are more than 50 different ways all depending on the sung line. And thats just soleá. All the major palos are the same.

IMO, there´s only one way. Its boring and takes a long time. Its to play with CD´s.
