Sounds good man. No reason not to try. What's the worst that could happen?
I know there's some way to do it..just not sure what it is. You have to find your audience. That's the absolute key thing. 99% of people that want hear your music (they just don't know it yet) probably live more than 100 miles away from you.
There's a good book called "The Indie Band Survival Guide" that I would recommend. It walks you through basically every aspect of the music business, focusing on internet tools for getting your music out there like Pandora, Last fm, podcasts, myspace, personal website, youtube, etc etc.

I think you can do it but what people are urging you to do here is not take an overly romantic view of the music business unless you really are the next Django Reinhardt or something. People won't just be throwing money at you. It really can be a dirty business and you have to claw your way up. And DON'T GIVE UP!!!

RE: Making a living out of Music (in reply to Andy Culpepper

If you persevere opportunities will arise and you will have your shot at going big.

Depends on what road you want to take... big time concerts are very, very hard; you'll be staying 3-4 days with just 3 hours of sleep..you'll probably be a wreck after a few but the payoff is very good. After that you're living in paradise for a few months. Still it's painful work.

ORIGINAL: Rain

He is making music that many people love , it may not be very complicated but who says music needs to be complicated to be good. I for one liked the the piece "The most Evolved" But than again I like people who are creative and can compose much more than trained monkey's who can play a Paco or Sabicas piece. I myself am a trained monkey who can play classical guitar, my interest in improv has lead me to the flamenco guitar.

To think for one moment Entre dos Aguas is different from what John Clarke is doing is absurd, the only thing is John clarke or Ottmar Liebert, and Jesse Cooke keep rewriting Entres Dos Aguas.


Trained monkey's don't work as flamenco players. Pretty much it is a requirement to work in flamenco to know both traditional music AND be creative to some degree. The players that do only solo flamenco guitar compositions of masters, or primarily that's their gig, are few and far between. I can name only 3 off hand, Paco Peña, Grisha, Javier Conde. Masters of preserving the "standards" of the repertoire and perform them in concert, are important for the genre. But your average joe flamenco professional works as an accompanist. Majority of "solistas" or players that can and do give solo concerts, are composers too. The cream of the crop of flamenco accompanists have enough material to perform a solo concert of some sort, regardless if they do or not.

I did not say music that is not complex is not good, nor commercially viable. I was only pointing out the distinction for what it means to WORK in the genre of flamenco vs general music, because I felt reading through this thread the original poster is actually "off topic" with his reasoning that one such as "john clarke" can make it as a pro flamenco guitarist. People giving advice to go to dance class or work with dancers, is irrelavant in this case. That music (spanishy nuevo), and that direction is possible to make some money, but its not like working as a flamenco, and off topic. Please don't make me bring up "fakemenco".... In addition, it is clear that he (Clarke) as a guitarist is more toward an amature and low level musician.

To say that Entre dos Aguas, or any rumba from a bonafide flamenco player or rumbero for that matter, is the SAME as Ottmar, Cooke or Clarke...is totally wrong. Those guys CAN NOT EVEN STRUM RUMBA for god's sake. That is not even the basic groove of such a song. They can't strum like that infact, based on my observation. They can't do such a job as a "rhythm guitarist por rumba". They simply don't know it. No one that can actually play Entre dos Aguas or even Gypsy Kings songs proplerly, will say what those guys are doing is "rumba".

It may seem like a technique detail, but however you want to see it, that is not the same music feeling or sound or anything. Perhaps they WANT it to be perceived as that, but then why not learn it the right way? I think it is better to say they are doing their own thing, and leave it at that, off topic spanishy guitar.

quote:

I never mentioned that I play Flamenco, I play a few flavoured flamenco fusion stuff and I love the art of flamenco but thats not what I do.
And I dont want to compare my style to flamenco or the style of other people I play. Ricardo it is as if you say im in the wrong place to discuss this ? Well if I am then i would just like to thank the people that understood and gave some good feedback on the topic.


Understood. No problems, just thought it should be made clear where you were headed, vs how some folks offering advice might be thinking about it. (myself included earlier on....). It is important because there are some who view playing that style of music MORE COMMERCIALLY VIABLE then actual flamenco music, and it follows, one would think, it easier to make a "career" out of it. But understand from the point of view of the actual folks who dedicate their time and life to flamenco music, this can be seen as a "sell out" rather then a legit artistic pursuit. Frustrating concept for those that never even wanted to play flamenco in the first place, but just simply like to play the "spanishy" guitar. To be safe, and not snobby, I am thinking this is off topic from "general flamenco". I want to be clear, I was earlier and in past topics, refering to, and felt frustrated by those that feel pursuing actual flamenco is a bad idea and recommend against it to new comers to the genre.

Ricardo sweetheart no wonder you're struggling career wise, you need to learn about web 2.0 and emerging music business models. Go read Techdirt


Sweekcakes, when did I say my career was struggling???? People I play for and get money from never cared for how many youtube hits I got, that is for sure.

MORE COMMERCIALLY VIABLE

Well if you want to put it like that then yes, I have much respect for flamenco but I guess for alot of reasons im not playing flamenco is that it is very unfamiliar among South Africans. But I play my own style that I shaped and I love what im doing and will never change it. I wish I actualy never mentioned John Clarke but you said they are amature artists well I must honestly say that you guys are very good and would like to become so good and make my own unique style one day mixing flamenco with all sorts of genre's (well thats what I do already)
Thanks again and sorry to those that dedicate their live to Flamenco that I may offended you ^_^

I know you want to say a diplomatic version of "I dont care - its my business", but lets be clear, one will never "become so good" by playing Clarke's music. No matter how well you play it, it will never match the artistic value of any flamenco music. That is my opinion. It is normal that you dont see much difference, because i assume you dont have listening experience? So thats normal (not critisizing you).

Lastly, i think you are on a good way. Doing Flamenco would interfere with what you call "creating own unique style". To push the boundaries of flamenco you have to have mastered it before. These are two contrary mindsets, so i think fusion seems to work better with you.

Well, the thing is none of these Flamingistas are mixing "Flamenco" with anything at all.
They are only mixing their distorted impression of what they think Flamenco is about with something else...(sometimes even a distorted impression of what they think Indian Sitar music or Traditional North African music is about)...and then go on to claim that they are somehow "pushing the boundaries" of these old, complex and unique forms of music without ever having studied or understood any of them to any degree at all other than listening to a few CDs on their HiFi, perhaps coupled with a few weeks holidays in foreign parts which they refer to as "studying" in their literature.

The truth is IMO they are playing a hotchpotch of 4/4 noodling pop stuff and referring to these old and established forms in PR releases and concert programs to somehow give their simple pop music some kind of gravitas, glitz and authenticity when in fact it has none whatsoever.

At least the Cheeky Girls accepted they were doing teenybop, party, bubblegum music and didn't claim John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Shostakovich as being influences.

cheers,

Ron

No, you did'nt say that it was not complex, I did by my statement.

Paco Pena plays his own material as well. The trained monkey thing is me saying I'm a million times more impressed by some who can compose or create than one who can mimic, in a very harsh way. So basically I'm much more impressed by you and Jason than I am by many others including myself.

I Would never claim anything for what i havnt achieved and I never again mentioned that I would surpass the flamenco boundries to achieve a unique flamenco spanish fusion style on my own. I said that I have little flamenco influences and I do.

RE: Making a living out of Music (in reply to KMMI77

Not too bad, some of the things there took me painful experience to discover. We could use some of that motivation more in the other thread, "Practice PDL". I like the 3:30 passage where he says about laying one brick at a time to get a wall. Somehow reminds me of the asian idiom(?) that every marathon starts with a first step. But not quite since it is more about perfectionism. I think theres alot to learn from that, to concentrate on what you can do NOW and to do it as perfectly as you can, no matter on which level you are.
He also says that the separation of talent and skill is a misunderstanding. Are you sure you posted this in the right thread?

Hey Ron, thats kind of outdated language you use. I prefer "off topic spanishy guitar" or F...menco. Dont want to write it out, just replace the 3 dots with letters. Hint: Its not Flamenco

It was the other thread that reminded me of this video.I decided it was relevant to both though It's a bit cheesy but it's always worth listening to someone who has achieved so much.

don't be so "harsh" on yourself then. To mimic the maestros of flamenco is precisely how one will get a solid traditional base, only after which can one truly create in a legitimate way and still be true to the art form. IMO. Mclaughlin once said he did not believe in true freedom without discipline. Of course he was talking about improvisation, but I think that fits even better to something like flamenco as an art form. I for one would prefer to hear a player simply interpreting or "mimicking" the traditional flamenco well, then this clarke guys's creative ideas, any day. But that is just me.

RE: Making a living out of Music (in reply to Andy Culpepper

What's that proverb about all roads leading to one particular place? (Is it Mecca?) It seems all threads on foroflamenco lead to a discussion of Real Authentic Flamenco vs. the fake stuff.

As much as anyone has the right to play what they want to play, I still think that anyone who claims to "Love the Flamenco form" would therefore want to learn the flamenco form. What you do with it after that is completely up to you.

Reinhardt, as much as everyone here surely wishes you luck in your endeavours, if you were to have great sucess in the style of music you mention and became a big star, you would almost surely join the pantheon of fake flamenco artist so despised by the folks here at foroflamenco.

The big difference between the guys who play some kind of fusion and are hated compared to the fusionists that are loved is that the loved variety ALSO know flamenco well. The others are posers and fakers. Take Ketama and Gipsy Kings for example. They know how to play the real thing.

Study the real thing. I'd bet no one on this site would tell you different. Your fusion will have much more authenticity than the artists that you mentioned earlier, who all basically stink to high heaven. Jesse Cook? Sheesh!

RE: Making a living out of Music (in reply to Reinhardt

Sorry if you maybe felt folk were jumping on you, Reinhardt.

It's just that we hear the same stuff time and time again.

It's pretty common actually...even friends I know who are rock musicians and folk players etc, who are sensible enough guys think that in Flamenco you just make it all up as you go along!

Just one big free-for-all where anything goes...just do what you feel.

That includes the singing and dancing!

When you start explaining that there is some sort of structure to this stuff and try to tell them about Flamenco "compás"...their eyes just sort of glaze over and they get restless and bored and change the conversation.

They mainly like the rasgueado, unusual chords and lightning picado bits and that's it...

So you're not alone in your initial impression.

That's why I come here to discuss Flamenco, 'cos it's practically useless trying to share my interest with anybody else I know.

I think that's why some folk think we are a bunch of "snobs" or some kind of "closed club".

I think they'd get the same reaction though if they went on to an English Canal Boat Forum and started a conversation on Powerboat Racing or vice versa.

cheers,

Ron

with all due respect, i love you guys, i have the luxury of knowing everyone of you and wouldnt have it anyother way but we kind of fuc*ing ARE!!


the second someone new logs on and is a litlle too confident or thinks he knows a litlle too much... too soon we make sure to remind him of his place theres only one way to get liked here at the start and thats to put yourself down so much that we will feel bad and encourage you a litlle.....everybody loves a guy with no confidence lol


lets be honest with ourselfs for a second ai

theres alot of snobbey but then in return ...theres so much positive stuff that noone will find on any other forum...also because we have to keep our mouth shut in real life , at gigs and partyes when people tell you about " the best flamenco guitarrist in the world" and about what "flamenco is" and about the new" flamenco" album they got ...i guess we take certain libertys with straight foward speaking here...

Reinhardt dont take it personally, as i said its a combination of some of the things above...flamenco is one of those things only a small hanfull of people dedicate their life studying it but every person out there thinks they "know" what it is.. i think u have handled it really really well...respect to you amigo

just wanted to say this was an inspiring thread. thank you to everyone who shared their knowledge and positive thoughts.

do flamencos really come off as arrogant to newcomers? what specifically is it that sounds arrogant?

oh god..... i get that like, everyday. but can't we inform them somehow without sounding arrogant? how can we tell folks who try to clap along that they're doing it wrong without sounding like a jerk?

RE: Making a living out of Music (in reply to Andy Culpepper

Well theres a difference between someone who just wants to small talk with you, be friendly etc and someone who is seriously going to be a musician. I dont think Reinhardt wanted to small talk.
Sure you can ignore ignorance of flamenco in conversations anytime, you seem to have build up an enormously thick skin :). But try to see it this way: if everybody would be honest to their art and audience, you would never even have to "conversate" about this stuff.
OF COURSE we are snobs, from the standpoint of someone who practices 8 hours Rodrigo y Gabriela and considers John Clarke as good artist because he makes music many people like (YouTube hits ^^). If Reinhardt does not have the right to think of us as snobs, then nobody has .

Meanwhile the rule of 1 per month remains unchanged
