Watch the Venezuelan Merengue online guitar lesson by Jesús Hernández from Latin American Guitar Guidebook

There are different styles that share the name merengue. However, they're quite different, and in this case I will show you a completely different one. Venezuelan merengue is distinct from the more popular Dominican merengue. The rhythms have actually very little in common, except that they were commonly written for partner dancing. There is probably no agreed way to properly notate the lilt of the Venezuelan merengue. Quite frequently we use a 2/4 rhythm. The first half of the bar is written as an eighth-note triplet. The second half of the bar is written as two eighth notes. The unique swing in the second half is what gives Venezuelan merengue its lilt. Another approach is to notate the Venezuelan merengue as 5/8. This is the one I will use in this video.
