Pepe del Morao 

Has anyone heard the most recent piece he posted on Facebook? It's only a minute or so in length but it's some really beautiful playing. The presence of melody is quite something.

Stunningly beautiful, flows like a gentle cascade of mountain water that tastes of sweet wine.

Back in the day before the world was all globalized and that , it was pretty common to pass trades down from Father to Son, keeping things within the family and such. Gitano's seem pretty old school in this way of keeping they're traditions where many others have even forgotten there culture in there adapted ways to the 'system' and have even lost languages through new generations of adaption. For example a 3rd gen Italian living in America that cant speak Italian but has fluent English.

In my opinion , genetics are not the main contributing factor to something like the Morao Dynasty and its Flag bearers rather than having open access to that established school along with all the support and networks that come with it.

Be it nature or nature, the Morao dynasty has provided music an embarrassment of riches and may they continue to do so.

Doesn't this belong in the playing in the bathroom thread?

Very fluid playing.

Found this one, love the sound of the guitar, looks old with a cedar top, I want it.
Some crazy Alzapua near the end.

RE: Pepe del Morao (in reply to tijeretamiel

I still can't stop playing this - such a beautiful piece of music!!

One odd thing I noticed though, he seems to have down-tuned the guitar a tone to D? On Youtube I recently came across his Dad playing a rumba with downtuned bottom E to D. Apart from that I haven't come across people using alternate tunings in flamenco before.

Are alternate tunings specific to the Moraos (or a Jerez thing perhaps??) or more common than that?

more common than that. Rondena tuning (drop D with the G-string also dropped to Fsharp). Zapateados or Zambra with drop D tuning (e.g. Sabicas or Nino Ricardo), and Gerardo Nunez has probably some of the more unique ways of tuning the guitar in flamenco. Then there also siguirya in drop-B. Etc. etc.

RE: Pepe del Morao (in reply to Piwin

They're absolutely common nowadays. While guitarists are always searching for new things to say and new ways to do it, it has become normal for them to explore alternate tunings in all styles.
Moraíto didn't use alternate tunings a lot, he has a rondena and one or two pieces with drop D tuning (which has always been common). His sons use all kinds of alternate tunings.
So while the rondena and drop D tunings have been around, you can now hear many pieces with drop C and drop B tunings, and several other uncommon variations. Aside from Ramón Montoya (inventor of the rondena), check out Nino Ricardo, Sabicas, Manolo Sanlúcar, Paco de Lucía and almost anyone since Paco, you will find several examples.
