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.
An intermediate level Fandangos de Huelva falseta that features a bit of syncopation and a few little bursts of arpeggio. Works great as an intro, or you can use it anywhere in your Fandangos de Huelva.
A classic intermediate/advanced Fandangos de Huelva falseta by Pepe Habichuela. It features a lot of scales, but since the scales are phrased in triplets and not in 16th notes it’s not quite as technically challenging as it could be and actually quite playable.
This Sabicas Soleá falseta will not only work both hands but will also really work the coordination between the two hands. Plus it’s one of the all-time great Soleá falsetas that works at any tempo. Traditional definitely doesn’t always mean easy!
This classic Soleá falseta by the great Ramon Montoya starts out quite elegantly and then ends with a bang. It’s also a fantastic left-hand workout, and it has a little quirk, in that it has an “extra” six beats (don’t worry, we explain why and also how to remedy the situation if needed).
