So we have given some tools and some introductions to the genre of Joropo…..now let’s get our hands dirty in the variations!
In this last lesson we will be looking at some nice sounding sub-genres. You will be able to complete the course after demonstrate that you can play all these sub-genres.
Remember that the sub-genres are based on the same rhythm pattern that we analyzed before. Joropo Corrio is used for some sub-genres and Joropo Central for some others.
Keep in mind that within the lesson topics themselves, you are not confined to use the chords suggested. We provide the progression of chords in these sub-genres so that you can apply any key to them.
Take a good look at the sub-genres and try to play them in different keys. This will enhance your felxibility and ability in terms of a Cuatrista. So, next time you are playing in a group you can simply say, “Epa! Let’s play a San Rafael in A Minor”, without any problem!
