In this week’s episode we look at the Silencio and the transition into the Castellana. The Silencio itself is pretty standardized - it’s essentially a mini guitar solo that is slow, lyrical and in the minor key, and it’s one of those things you can actually have prepared beforehand. The Castellana is back in the major key and up-tempo, so the transition into it, and just starting it in the first place, can be tricky if you don’t know what to look for. So we tell you what to look for!
