Parang Rhythms

Let’s start with the first Parang Rhythms!

The right hand or the playing hand is the most important hand when playing parang.  You will need to be very precise with your tempo when executing the rhythm.

Parang is normally played in measures of 6 strums each, but you have to be careful because sometimes you will need to do 5 strums, like in Aguinaldo, or some other times do 6 strums like in Joropo.

We will study in detail the following rhythms:

  • Aguinaldo
  • Merengue
  • Joropo
  • Galeron
  • Estribillo
  • Soca Parang
