The Compás Clock

Soleares

1     2         4     5     6    7     8     9     10     11     12    

Other forms with this compás structure are Caña, Polo, Policiana and Soleá por Bulerias

 

 

Alegrías

1     2         4     5     6    7     8     9     10     11     12   

This is essentially the same as Soleares, except that the 12 count is subdued or softened.

Other forms with this compás structure are Cantiñas, Mirabrás, Caracoles and Romeras

 

 

Bulerias - Variation 1

This is the usual way to count bulerias with extra accent on the 3:

12    1     2      3    4     5     6    7     8     9     10     11

 

 

Bulerias - Variation 2

The accents are placed on each count of 1, to correspond with the 12,  3,  6,  8  and 10 of the clock. This divides up the 12 into bite size chunks of 3-3-2-2-2

1    2     3     1    2     3     1    2     1    2     1    2    

 

 

Bulerias - Variation 3

In the real world, the count of 7 is often accented instead of 6 like this:

12    1     2      3    4     5     6    7    8     9     10     11    

Other forms with this compás structure are Guajiras, Peteneras, Zorongo and Alboreás

 

 

Siguiriyas - Variation 1

8      9      10      11      12      1      2      3      4      5      6      7     

 

 

Siguiriyas - Variation 2 (12 equally spaced counts).

1      and      2      and      3      and      a      4      and      a      5      and     

Other forms with this compás structure are Livianas and Serranas

 

 

This is what the linear compás relationships look like
