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.
