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.
This might look like a picado exercise, but it's more about synchronization and learning to relax the pinky when it has a lot to do. Take this one slow, really focus on relaxing that pinky, and don't overdo it!
This is a popular exercise that can really be about whatever you want to work on, given that it's just a ton of notes. You can focus or synchronization, mechanics of either hand, relaxation, alternation, endurance - whatever you want really. This one's practically a blank canvas.
This is a deceptively simple exercise that Viejín showed me many years ago. Learn Part 1 first, then take this one slowly to get the most out of it. And don't underestimate it just because it's "simple."
