An interactive metronome for fandangos de Huelva, played with cajon and palmas.
A basic fandango de Huelva rhythm, meant to provide a foundation for this palo’s many rhythmic and phrasing variations. Though fandango de Huelva can be played in straight 3s, it is often phrased in 12 beat (and sometimes 6 beat) cycles. Some phrases also start 2 beats early and span 14 beats altogether – which means a shorter phrase is needed to lead into them. In each of these cases, it is important (as always) to know where you are in the overall compas and how to keep in sync with the cycle as a whole.
