I am not quite sure of the traditional chord progression for soleá cante and on which beats the chords change.

Does this make sense?

E.E7(3)......Am(10)..
Am.D7(3)......G7(10)..
Am G F(3)......E(10)..

E.G7(3)......C(10)..
Am G F(3)......E(10)..
E.G7(3)......C(10)..

Is it correct?
Any help is welcome

thanks
Richard

well, i wouldn't call it traditional but i would call it basic or common. it all depends on the letra and how the singer sings it.

ok, going off of what you already have, here is a common one

the structure is like this if you think of it like verses in poetry.

A
(sometimes you get a respiro here, where the singers pauses and you can add a twiddly bit, or the dancer does a remate)
A
B
C
B
C

the A section is:
E.E7(3)......Am(10)..
you can add a G sharp on the 6th string on the 6th beat for added tension.
Am G F(3)......E(10)..

the BC section is:
E.G7(3)......C(10)..
Am G F(3)......E(10)..

but again, it all depends on the singer, so it's better to just listen to him/her for the chord changes instead of thinking of it like a fixed structure.
