Transcription of a Falseta from El C... 

I have been transcribing tons of stuff lately and practicing alot more. My thesis is still not done so I may have to hide myself away to work on it but right now I am so inspired.

Paco was the man. What a genius. This is one of my favorite falsetas. He does so much with so little.

Notes:
1. For ease of reading I have notated in 3/4.
2. I have made sure that each staff includes 4 measures so that there is always a full compas on each staff. That is not to say that some of the phrasing is in 6s; I just find it difficult to read when Faucher and others put odd numbers of measures on a staff, or worse, include a half measure that extends on to the next staff.
3. So many people have uploaded footage of Paco's live performances that we can now study it in more detail. AWESOME. Some footage is very good. The cameramen zoom in on Paco and you can get a feel for his positions and fingerings.
4. There are some chords in which notes are only hinted at. MATICES!!! MATIZAR. It has been really interesting studying his stuff because there are times when notes that do not really fit the chord are played very lightly and only because it allows for the notes of a particular postura.
As I work on this and get the slurs and other performance notes I'll upload it.

Enjoy

This has some corrections plus all the slurs.

There are a couple of spots where I use slurs for picados because I cannot play as fast as Paco of course. Mm 37 and 42 are sixteenth not triplets. I begin with a slur but play it how you see fit. Most other slurs are hopefully accurate.

this was my take a while ago...I put a lot of time into this one, most of the positions we don't agree on :) - but it's fun to play the two simultaneously :)

Thanks for that. I am working on the whole thing. To capture every nuance is next to impossible without performance notes. A transcription can only tell what the notes are. Sometimes there are notes played that aren't really part of the chord but aren't noticeble. Other times they are slightly hinted at and add nice dissonance.

Anyway, cool. Thanks.

By the way, what do you not agree with position wise?

I make it a point to transcribe everything that happens on the fretboard, including accidentals (which can sometimes make the tab a little bit too busy), but they help a lot. If you listen to the ligados and slides more carefully, as well as the adjacent notes, you will realize that some of those positions are completely different :)

RE: Transcription of a Falseta from ... (in reply to Kevin

There should be a transcription challenge. That would be cool. Choose a piece and then everyone transcribe and record a performance of it. It's have to be something that is not already available on the market.

I tend to sometimes follow Faucher and sometimes Worms. On the one hand I like tabs. On the other, it's great to see the notes with tab. Flamenco in general gets busy in transcription. "Too many notes!!!"

That's right :)
Actually that wouldn't be a bad idea, transcribing is great for the ears and in the long run for the hands as well!
