7 Seasons

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.
