Malthus101 -> Blanca o Negro for Canta Jondo? (May 31 2022 18:57:19)

Hello, newbie style question here!

I am primarily interested in cante jondo forms....

So should I look for a blanca or a negro guitar? Or does it make no difference/is a personal preference?

Or is it more to do with, will I be playing solo or as an accompaniment to a singer?

It is pretty personal, I love the sound of a blanca, for old school stuff is a dry old school blanca perferct I think.
A Negra for solo stuff is also nice, but a blanca has that special sound a negra does not have.
I have a Jose Lopez Bellido from 1984 blanca, that would be perfect for that kind of music. Or accompanying cante Jondo.
Try a lot of guitars, and you will find the sound you like.

Comping cante jondo is an art that takes many years to learn. If you are capable of acompanying for exampla a cante por solea, or siguiriyas, you mostly are used to your guitar already. If you start learning, many of the blancas are a bit easier to play.
Most important is, try the guitar and if you feel happy with it, that's the one to go :)

This is a stupid question. The last time I had the chance to accompany Rancapino, somebody gave me a mala guitar de playa. Alonso did not mind.

Any guitar will do for any style.
