Need help with bulerias compas withi... 

For many people here this question may sound elementary and stupid , however please take into account that all I'm learning is by myself without any teachers or pro flamenco players that can guide me.

Im watching alot of bulerias videos and counting while doing so and in some of those videos (especially Sabicas' bulerias which is played by Grisha) I clearly hear the compas in the "transition" between the falsetas but not in the falseta itself. I do hear that the falseta fits into a whole circle of 12 (or sometimes two circles) but i don't hear a clean devision of the "three three two two two"

Is it suppose to be like this in the bulerias? (unlike the solea in which i clearly hear the "three three two two two" in the falsetas itself)

Any help will be appreciated

sometimes falseta's are counted in 2, 3, 6 or 12 beats, without following the accents in the compas.

If you can identify the 12th beat, try tapping your foot on 12,2,4,6,8, and 10
The accent on the three will be when your foot is up. This is the easiest way to get a handle on it IMO. Two groups of six beats each marked by three taps of your foot. You'll feel the swing.
