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.
I used to hear guitarists in the Caño Roto barrio of Madrid work on this one all the time. It’s basically a synchronization exercise for Picado that can either be played very comfortably or extremely uncomfortably.
Work on the two ways of planting you left hand for Arpeggios with this traditional bit of Tangos Arpeggio. The material is pretty simple, but learning to groove it well is key for playing a grooving Tangos compás, and deciding how you eat to plant is a big part of building a solid Arpeggio here.
The traditional Alegrias Escobilla falseta is basically a ton of Arpeggios, so use that as an exercise while you developing solid planting, both full and sequential. And you can use exactly the same melody to work on your 16th PAMI Arpeggios or your sextuplets.
