Basics (PD Rap V1L1-4)

Lesson 1: Basics

In this lesson, you will learn the first four lines of the first verse of “Pies Descalzos”.  Use the materials below to familiarize yourself with the sounds and rhythm of this song.

Rhythm

The rhythm for the verse is simple.  You just alternate eight times between stressed syllables (DA) and unstressed syllables (di) for each line.  The difficulty will be in memorizing and articulating the syllables without losing the beat.  All of both verses maintains this same rhythm, so we will not do any more rhythm review for the rest of this unit.
