Subject: How to practice compas? Reply | View One | Post New

i have been playing Flamenco guitar for a while now. I can feel the compas almost instantly when listening to artist playing or just simply accompaniment with palmas. However, when I try to play the guitar at the same time I loose all sense of the compas.

Can anyone recommend on how to practice feeling it while at the same time playing? Should I just keep practicing and it will come naturally or are there some techniques that would be more efficient than others?

Thanks in advance

Each palo has a different feel. Usually there are a few basic compás that can represent each palo. If you learn those fundamental compás, and play them over and over, you can get in the groove of playing any compas while keeping the fundamental compas in mind. As you play the fundamentals, try doing variations. After a while, it becomes second nature.

For me, making a distinction between phrasing of each compas did the trick. Listening to today's flamenco can be tricky because these days a lot of people are syncopating over the fundamental compas, and an untrained ear could get thrown off. The older stuff are less syncopated. So if you want to learn by listening, I suggest listening to more traditional songs.

I know all the basic comapas' and I can instantly feel them when listening to other people playing or when taping it myself.
What I have trouble with is feeling it when I start playing the guitar.
