A basic soleá rhythm played with cajón and palmas. The compás of soleá starts on the "one" count and accents the 3, 6, 8, 10, and 12 beats of the 12 beat cycle. When playing with others (or by yourself), this is a palo that can accommodate quite a bit of "push and pull" tempo-wise, but you’ll want to be sure to be solid on the count (i.e. don’t drop beats or "add 13s") and on where the "one" is (which is where many traditional falsetas begin). Playing with a metronome is good practice for both of these goals.
