Joropo Rhythm with Maracas

The rhythm of Joropo is very similar to Waltz when being played with the maracas, the main difference being it is played at a higher tempo. In the following video, you will see how the same rhythm we have recently learned as with Waltz but played at the tempo corresponding to the rhythm of Joropo:

We recommend starting to execute this slowly at first and then gradually increasing the tempo. This way, you will continue practicing until you manage to reach the correct speed just as is being demonstrated in the video.

In the video, we showed the rhythm of Joropo mixing the base with an escobillao. To do so, count every 8 bars and change to the escobillao, then count another 8 bars and change to the basic playing method.
