Flamenco Explained - The Guitarist's Survival Guide, is the first book that breaks down the inner workings of flamenco and helps the guitarist truly understand this amazing art form. Flamenco Explained presents the underlying architecture of flamenco in a new way that is accessible to all musicians and prepares the aspiring guitarist to accompany flamenco dance and cante and communicate with other flamenco musicians. Flamenco Explained has already been used as the foundation for Berklee College of Music's first ever flamenco guitar class.
Our Cante Play Along Series was designed to provide the missing link in most flamenco guitarists’ education - the chance to play for a flamenco singer. We've produced videos of a fantastic young flamenco singer - Antonio El Turry - with percussion but without guitar, so you can experience what it’s like to be the accompanist. We also provide tutorials for each Play Along video to show what chords you’ll need to know and how the structures of the selected letras work, along with some embellishment and other advanced ideas for each Palo. The Play Along videos themselves provide a loop of the letra with some basic information provided on the first round, after which we take away the safety net and let you learn and experiment at home.
