Flamenco Guitar


This video illustrates the evolving nature of both classic and flamenco guitar performance technique. In this landmark debut video performance, virtuoso guitarist Adam Del Monte demonstrates his mastery of both genres, as well as his skills as a composer and improviser. With fingers flying in the face of conventional opinion, he deftly achieves both a synthesis and crystalline separation of the two guitar forms. This video presents a varied repertoire of contemporary classic and progressive flamenco.

This landmark historical text delivers the goods promised in its title. It does not address flamenco dance whatsoever, focusing instead on flamenco song forms with a special chapter devoted to the role of the guitar. Includes Spanish lyrics for dozens of flamenco songs along with English translations and interpretive notes, a glossary of flamenco terminology, plus a recommended bibliography and discography are also provided. Informal in its demeanor, this carefully researched, insightful book will help you develop a deeper appreciation for the flamboyant art of flamenco.

Mel Bay's Flamenco Guitar Wall Chart offers an overview of the essential elements of this flamboyant art form. It provides musical examples of the principal techniques, song forms and rhythms together with a glossary of flamenco terms, specifics of the structural differences between flamenco and classic guitars, and a chronological list of noteworthy flamenco players. A large photo of a guitar constructed by Rafael Moreno Rodriguez of Granada, Spain graces the chart, sure to appeal to the novice or seasoned flamenco guitarist!

The legendary flamenco guitarist and best-selling Mel Bay Publications author, Juan Serrano, is well-known for his sound recordings, transcriptions of his music, and technical methods for flamenco guitar. Now the music that formed his technical repertory and was the musical foundation given to him by his father, Antonio el del Lunar, (guitarist for all the flamenco singers of his time including Pastora Pavon-Nina de los Peines) is at your fingertips in this book that contains completely unreleased flamenco puro that is the foundation of one of the world's leading guitarists. These falsetas or variations on flamenco forms (toques) are graded so they are valuable for beginners, intermediate, advanced, and professional flamenco guitarists--or for classical guitarists that want to learn flamenco.

This book is a repertoire book that is a valuable supplement to other Juan Serrano books on Mel Bay, such as Flamenco Guitar: Basic Techniques, or The Flamenco/Classical Tradition: A Technical Guitar Method and Introduction to music. Includes standard notation and guitar tablature. This repertoire allows students to solidify right-hand arpeggios, rasgueados, and picados; and left-hand techniques such as ligados and apagados, while learning valuable repertoire that can be used by the concert artist.

Killer Technique: Flamenco Guitar introduces and explains essential flamenco techniques by virtuoso and best-selling Mel Bay author Juan Martin. The book includes exercises of enduring value, with helpful photos, diagrams and tablature. The material is designed for any experience level.

This book presents three challenging extended flamenco guitar solos by the legendary Agustin Castellon Campos, best known as Sabicas (1912-1990). The selections are: Bronce Gitano, Campina andaluza, and Duelo de campanas. Brief explanations of digitation symbols, flamenco tremolo technique, notation/tab conventions and use of the cejilla or capo are included. All of the music in this book appears in both standard notation and tablature.

Juan de la Mata, the transcriber of the pieces in this book, enjoyed a 30-year professional relationship with Sabicas and is a seasoned performer in the flamenco style. He has preserved not only the notes, but the spirit and nuance of this music as Sabicas played it.
