Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Ah yes, accents--the guy who demonstrates the 5 beat goes through three or four different patterns on the five, moving the accents about--I've always liked 7 beat as 3-2-2 but I enjoyed the 4-2-1 of Shoreline.  I had a look at some videos about the various beats in flamenco 12/8--fiendishly complex!

Here's an example, where the guy explains the accents, claps out the accents (and explains clapping techniques)--and he plays well!
