Tangos por Arriba (granada) 

Hello guys,

I found this beautiful video of Antonio Reyes singing Tangos de Grana :



I know that is por arriba so it's E Flamenco Key, but can anyone explain the chords progression (Also compas chords) for this kind of Tangos.

Ricardo you're Welcome

Thanks

Loved that. I liked how the guitarist took Paco's Tarranta falseta an moved it to por arriba in the intro. And it was cool to see him get props for his falseta at the mid five minute mark. Sometimes it seems the straight forward traditional falsetas get the biggest reaction.

The guitarist in the above video really played that tradiotional falseta with a bang. I like.


Maybe this will be helpful- A video of my friend Stan Olmstead teaching a traditional Tangos de Granada falseta when he visited me. He's playing one of my guitars and telling a little about when he lived in Granada. He's a good guitarist who also plays a John Shelton guitar.

Stan explains the basic chord progression and plays the falseta slowly.

This might also help - some variations of those same patterns (once you get past the intro):



And this may be of interest - very traditional, simple, no falsetas:

if you play tangos por medio you know the compás,

if you play Solea por arriba you know the chords....

take what you play in tangos por medio and just drop everything down a string (obviously not everything works out exactly), so A, Bb and C become E, F and G etc.

take passages of Solea por arriba in phrases of 3 beats and extend them to 4 beats (very easy to do with chord sequences)

If you are accompanying letras and the singer has a lower voice you have to play por arriba instead of por medio so it's quite common, just transpose the chords.

one example; you can take a typical compás of soleá where you play 3 beats each of F (maj7), C, F and close with E on 10, 11, 12 and just play 4 beats on each chord using tangos compás

etc. etc.

I wonder if you can point my to notes or some more information on these traditional falsettas - would be keen to learn something of that style. I tried to transcribe it but couldn't get it exactly. The first position run at 5:37 especially. I really like the expression he puts behind that one.

For anyone who might be interested, I know this is a very beginners thing but I tabbed this out, as I really like the sound of it and it's a good workout for the fourth finger! Hopefully this is about right and is useful to someone else starting.
