solea por buleria part 2 

okay guys,
question number two

You have the llamada, starts on 1, ends on 10 over two compasses?
so you start again after it on 1?
even when the dancers start on twelve
because in buleria you stop at 10 and begin again on 12, not so in solea por buleria?

and does anyone have good llamadas in your closet you want to share? I need some good ones badly.....

thanks

Generally a llamada does start on 1 for a solea por buleria. Theoretically the second time around you start on 1 again but it's was more important to accent the feet in the best way possible and maybe give a climactic feeling to the part that's ending.

There are dance llamadas that are rhythmically completely syncopated and would sound horrible with the guitar just strumming in compás. I say follow the feet and accent the 12.

This whole thing about "starting on..." whatever beat, is confusing the issue. The rhythm is constant regardless, so it is not about STARTING, it is about WHAT you do on a certain beat. You don't need to shift your internal feel because of llamada or whatever. I dont' care what you think "starting" means, I find it important to GIVE the accent "12" regardless. If that means a hard accented chord, fine, other times it is just a golpe. But that is the head and strong beat. Llamadas that start on 1 are just springing off of that accent. BOOM, taka taka taka taka TAH!....etc.

So if you STOP on 10, again you can give a chord or not on 12, but the important thing is to convey the feeling of WHERE the 12 is, because the singer too will be springing off of that. I just think "BOOM" for 12 and 6 regardless of what is happening. By "boom" I mean it is a heavy weight inside that grounds the entire thing, usually a bassy golpe conveys this.

Hope that helps.

Oh llamada 2 compases:
just an A chord:
BOOM, takataka takataka TA TA__uh ta ti boom, takataka, takataka, takataka TA TA__TA BOOM.
Bb9#11 chord:
Brrrap, Brrrap, BrrrapPAH__uh ta ti boom, Ta-ka-ta,Ta-ka-ta, Ta-ka-ta, (A chord)TA! (rest) BOOM....

You can do any rasgueados you want to make those rhythmic sounds. "boom" is just a heavy golpe. If cante is coming I will hit a nice loud A chord on that last "BOOM".

Singing that round the office is entertaining folk no end, but I'm not quite sure of the counting. I've got the second one, it's the first one I can't get. Help?

Not sure if this is going to help or confuse you more but.....

When I am dancing I always start on 12 - I am always feeling the compas starting on 12 BUT BUT BUT...... you may not see anything happening. In a llamada I go:
12 breathe in
1 golpe right foot
2 golpe right foot
3 golpe right foot
etc etc

You might see that as starting on 1, because that's the first thing you will see/hear. But it isn't how I feel it.

thanks for the help
it's making sense to me now.
and indeed ricardo, you said in the other thread about solea por bul., compas keeps going and going wether you feel the 12 th beat as the beginning or not...

Yep. FEELING is different than PLAYING something with rhythm. That 12 is real important to feel regardless what happens on it. Thanks for adding that to the discussion.

Yeah I agree it was much more poetic the first time

Thanks!

And now you've put the numbers in it's so obvious I'm thinking 'Duh! Of course that's how it goes'
