A genre can be described as a category for arts such as music or literature. This means that reggae can be considered a genre, flamenco, rock and joropo. Within a genre, there are also sub-genres which are slight variations of the main category. For example, we can have jazz and bluegrass jazz….both within the same category, but slight variations of one another.
In this course we will explore some of the most common sub-genres of joropo. These sub-genres follow differences in progressions and sometimes in style of play. It is always important to be able to recognize or distinguish between sub-genres and become familiar with the concept for when you move forward as musicians. We will also be able to see how previously learned notes and chords can be applied to playing this music. Along with this, we will also review some new notes and their chord families as we have done in previous courses.
Progressions and variations of Joropo with detailed video explanation and exercises. Assignments reviewed.
