There’s a lot more to flamenco than just the guitar. If you’ve experience flamenco Baile (dance) or Cante (singing) then you know what we’re talking about. In fact, it’s generally agreed that in order to be a fully formed flamenco guitarist you’ll want to have some experience accompanying dancers and singers.
Here you'll find courses and tutorials on getting started accompanying singers, Pro Tips on what to listen for and how to learn, as well as our Cante Play-Along series.
Our Cante Explained course features tutorials on accompanying Soleá, Tangos, Bulerias and Sevillanas with the great singer Juan Murube from Sevilla. We break down in detail some of the crucial moments to listen for in Solea and show you what to play.
Our Alegrias Explained course takes in you in great detail into the accompaniment of a danced Alegrias - one of the most complex styles to accompany in dance due to some vey specific sections that we cover in detail with singer Jose Fernandez and the great dancer Manuel Gutierrez.
Our Cante Play-Along provides a tool that will be incredibly useful to anyone learning to accompany flamenco Cante. We recorded the outstanding Granada-based singer Antonio El Turry singing with percussion and no guitar. We provide tutorials on what to play to accompany him, and then you practice on your own to her what you’ll sound like accompanying a world-class flamenco singer. We cover Tientos, Tangos, Solea Por Buleria, Alegrias, Guajiras, Fandangos de Huelva and of course Bulerias.
