You CAN learn flamenco through a book, especially with all the online resources you have access to to supplement your learning. I would agree with listening to a lot of flamenco and use video resources, paid or free, as much as possible. I would definitely recommend Juan Martin's aforementioned book for learning. It has a lot to say on technique, which is markedly different from classical one and might appear to be absurd for a classical guitarist but also happens to be the right way to play. He also has another series with DVDs to supplement to actually see it in action.Ricflair wrote: ↑Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:16 pmYou cannot learn flamenco through a book. Start by learning solea compas (baile). This will help you to begin to develop a sense of compas. you can slowly begin to build up a vocabulary of compas and falsetas from here. I would seek out a reputable teacher either online or in person. By the time you're able to truly integrate great sounding flamenco techniques in your classical playing, you will already probably be a pretty good flamenco player. Listening is very important. Paco de Lucia (obviously), Tomatito, Niño de Pura, Vincete Amigo are all great modern players.There are others, but this is a good list to start with. You need to listen to be able to get the feel or swing of the genre. If you don't listen to it, you'll never sound anything remotely 'flamenco'. Flamenco is all about compas we're staying in perfect time or groove. Many of the techniques I just smoke and mirrors and not as difficult as they sound. Good luck and I hope this helps!jmlineb wrote: ↑Mon Dec 31, 2018 1:28 pmWhat is the best introduction to Flamenco guitar technique for someone trained in the Classical guitar? What books, recordings, videos, artists, and solos might you recommend? I know I'll never be an authentic Flamenco guitar player, but I'd like to add some Flamenco techniques and even solos to my repertoire. Very few artists seem to be able to do both well; Adam del Monte is a notable exception, as well as (but to a lesser extent) Pepe Romero. Thank you!
