Jesus Guerrero has now shown up on several people's list. Isn't he supposed to have an album coming out soon? Anyone know the latest?

Living only, and favorites (not greatest)

Juan Carlos Romero
Tomatito
Gerardo Nunez
Jose Manuel Leon
Nino Josele
Dani de Moron (he can get to be pretty abstract, but I like that)

and I left Antonio Rey off the list originally, mistake, but I didn't like his last CD as much as the previous ones.

I thought I'd reply to let you know I'd like to provide a response but it could take a few days. I will have to spend some time with his CD's. I do so much of my flamenco listening in the car, as the wife doesn't like it blaring on the stereo all the time, and it all is mushed together in terms of being able to associate musical passages with certain songs. I think I recall that he doesn't report which palos he is playing in in the song titles, so it will require some listening (oh, poor me )

I see you are into ouds and even fretless guitar> I am an amateur luthier (mainly classical as there is a market among local students so they don't pile up), and I also have an oud, but can't really play any instrument worth a darn. I'd be interested in learning some details about preferred setup on the fretless guitar. (Action at 12th, string spacing at nut and bridge, etc.)

thanks for checking into it! no hurry , just curious...

as to fretless set up, it will really depend on the guitar but as low an action as possible is best; even a slight buzz is helpful for sustain. I'd have to measure mine but its very very low. I keep my regular electric pretty low- about 1.6 mm or less, 12th fret, high E -- and my fretless is much lower than that, even.

Neck should be set up as straight as possible, with little or no relief, and you want the same action near the nut as you do up higher the neck, or as much as possible. on electrics this is easier to deal with since there is a truss rod, but i think on classical /flamenco builds , this would means setting the original neck angle will be critical.
i may be interested in a fretless flamenco some day...:)!

RE: Five favourite flamenco guitarists (in reply to tele

Ricardo was the only one to cite Ramon Montoya.

I have to go with the base of most significant five. My favorites are another story too many.

Don Ramon
Melchor the Elder
Nino Ricardo
Moraito
Paco del Gastor

------------

That leaves out the greats:

PdL
Sabicas
And Cepero vs. Paco del Gastor is a toughie.

I go with the Montoya because he was an important accompanist in this era, Ricardo and Melchor made some of the most important recordings with singers in their era, Moraito, and Paco del Gastor because they made important documents with certain singers which are among the most important modern recordings.

So many others to choose from to listen to.

RE: Five favourite flamenco guitarists (in reply to JohnWalshGuitar

I'm glad this thread asks for personal favorites instead of "greatest flamenco guitarists". I actually heard Sabicas and Mario Escudero play in person and immediately fell in love with flamenco.
After that I became aware or a number of others who were highly regarded but whose exhibitionism turned me off. There are now so many greatflamenco guitarists that have/had different styles that they probably should fall into subcategories.

I second this question... just in case it got lost in the mix. Any idea if he has/will release a recording? I've heard good things but don't have any evidence :)
