Try this 

Here's something interesting you might try:

Warp the compas of a granainas into a siguiriyas. The result can be incredibly beautiful.

I'm good at warping the compas of any style, completely unintentionally.

'What's the compas of Granainas?'

It's free, of course. Better if I'd said 'Apply the siguiriyas compas to a traditional granainas melody.' Come to think of it, a traditional media granaina would serve as well. The result is a mournful (rather than hard Phrygian) siguiriyas. But: no big deal.

As wester wrote, its usually free. But when it takes rythm like malaguena its compas is 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2...

RE: Try this (in reply to wester

Sorry it was a bit of a loaded question. Granaina like most fandangos type forms, usually takes on phrases in 3's, at least with arps and tremolos etc. The idea that it has tonal qualities vs Siguiriyas's dark modality, is because it IS a fandangos. Just a special one melodically.

And about compas, once you know it, you can do any form in any compas. I have accompanied a singer with Granaina por bulerias. And Gypsy Kings have a Rumba version of Granaina. So siguiriyas would work too, just feel pretty weird. Try any fandango or Taranto/a type stuff in compas of Siguiriyas. Personally, I liked the bulerias versions.
