Paco Warming up! 


Interesting thumb movement...no wrist movement at all. That said, I've seen another vid of him using his wrist...The bottom line is: his technique is progressive, not falling into any defined rule or discipline...a real universal technique if there ever was one.
Very inspiring.

If you look very quickly at first seconds of video, you think that he's playing with four strings!

Nice. I actually used something similar to what he has near the bridge before getting into flamenco. Once you take that off, your fingers fly.

I use sponge a lot for practicing not to disturb the little children next room or neighboors (though they keep coming complaining but anyway...)

What's great about this interview is that Paco sounds worried, like he's pressed for time and might not be sufficiently warmed-up for the concert.

If it's possible for Paco to not be ready for a concert, then I give up.

I'm not sure if this is the scale he uses at the end but this is what I was able to grasp towards the end part. I'm using a cloth because it was kind of late when I recorded this and also I like to use it sometimes.

That's a good clip there Dedos.

Really terrific the ease he whacks that stuff out with!!
A true maestro!

Actually I saw Gerardo Nuñez warming up quietly while giving an interview for Ondajerez TV just before he was due to go on.

Bloody fantastic!
He was hammering out all these lightning scales while still speaking to the interviewer in a really casual and relaxed manner!

Personally, I could watch a whole video of all that "warming up" stuff of the masters.
If you are a guitarist, then it's fascinating "entertainment" in itself!

cheers,

Ron

If its the alabastro string, then its awesome. Using it for 3 years now. Didnt put on ANY other treble string on my guitar since then. But i doubt you will like it Ricardo, since it is a very bright string, and has a not so warm sound.

Re: that weird white string...

I used to use Savarez wound trebles. Sounds weird I know, but they are made like the basses are, except with plastic winding instead of metal. Very bright response!!

I stopped using them because my Francisco Barba is so amazingly bright anyway, and also because they tend to cause a bit of burn after playing a full night.

PS these days I use d'Aquisto regular clear trebles and Luthier Popular Supreme 20 basses. (Don't bother with the silver basses IMO)

Yeah, sorry I meant to say the sponge. I personally don't have any problems with it in general. Everything just sounds so much better after you take it off. At least for me it does. That's why when I saw Paco using the sponge it brought back some memories on how I practiced years ago. Like you say, for people just learning different techniques it might not be such a good idea to use it.

RE: Paco Warming up! (in reply to Dedos

Just got back from Paco's concert. I was expecting the worst after reading up here on the forum, but it was a good show. He played well. He started slow and seemed to get into it more as the show progressed. The harmonica player really stood out to me--he was a badass! The rest of the group was excellent as well. I guess I would say there was a lot of fusion in there, a good deal of jamming. Sometimes it was a bit busy on stage, with jamming and singing and the dancer, who I thought was excellent, out in front. Paco didn't sound much like the Night in SF album I have, more like a normal human being, but obviously still masterful. It seems he has gotten subtler and more syncopated over time.

Where do you guys get the sponge material you use under the strings? I was out shopping on Saturday and looked all over at Target, Mendards, and Walmart and couldn't find anything similar. Doesn't seem like Kitchen sponges are the way to go either though.
