Good tientos opening falseta 

Hola gente.
Looking for a good opening tientos falseta for my lady's choreography. She likes really melodic lyrical stuff so some sort of arpeggiated melody would be great. Anyone have any suggestions??
Grassyass!

Hola! The opening of "Tientos del Mentidero", by PDL is just magical, full of arpeggios and melodical stuff.

If there's anything in Sanlucar's Recreacion that you like I can send you a tab. No idea how hard it gets though.

Here's a tutorial on that one...






hmm, I feel like I should give that a go. Hardly played this last month, but this might get the ball rolling again.

Maybe remind her that not everything in flamenco is supposed to sound like an alegrias silencio?

Hahahaha that's exactly the problem!!! That's why she hates bulerias! It gets a bit maddening. I'll say "did you hear that???? Amazing!!" And she'll say, "meh". Then I pull my beard out.

RE: Good tientos opening falseta (in reply to Leñador

Why is it her choice? Do you tell her what steps to do? Uh, since it's your girl I think I know the answer but the bigger question is why should a dancer get to dictate the falseta? I have been asked by dancers to play specific falsetas even if the originals were in different keys, and I complied, but I think that was wrong of them to ask and wrong of me to do it. It's your moment dude! Play what you want!!

RE: Good tientos opening falseta (in reply to Leñador

i often have problems with Tientos finding suitable falsetas that work for dance choreographies when they want it reeeeaaaally slow (I play Tientos de Mentidero, and at the slow speed I'm sometimes asked to play it just falls apart, so I don't use any of it).

I played the Jason McGuire vid again, and this popped up after in on autoplay, might be useful

Hahaha I hear you but there's a couple reasons. When I work with other dancers I don't roll over so easy. With her, she's a student dancer who basically learns one solo per year or so and performs it live once a year or so. Basically it means so much more to her than it does to me so I do what I can to make it everything she wants. I tend to get a lot more opportunities to express myself and perform so it's no skin off my back to give her this.


Hey that's Aloysius! Those are awesome falsetas!!

RE: Good tientos opening falseta (in reply to Leñador

If you want to go full-out modern, you could pick some bits and pieces out of these. The Concha Buika one has a really nice tune to it. Whether it's technically tientos is another issue I guess...

Sounds like you need a short one for negotiating purposes, just to show how helpful you're trying to be.

This one from Gerardo is on iTunes:

"Llorando Ante Cristo Estoy" (Tientos) Gerardo Nuñez & Juan Ramón Fuentes Album: "Me Sabe Amargo"

I wish I could pull those off! They're a bit over my head in terms of being able to properly replicate and slide into tientos por baile. I love that concha video, it's been on my YouTube playlist for a while now.

Great tip! What a good album! It's real brief so I could probably slide that little lick in a lot of places.

Piwin hit the nail on the head, I couldn't describe exactly what she likes but I'd know it when I heard it and it's exactly what he said, she wants ALL flamenco to sound like a silencio. It's all so clear now lolol

She says she does, I'm sure it's no silencio.

Thanks Leñador, I completely forgot that I'd filmed those. I'm still playing exactly the same stuff for tientos, plus one I picked up from a Diego del Morao youtube clip that I'll post if I can find it again. I really need to spend time on this thread for some more ideas. When I accompany long tientos escobillas I find myself repeating the same stuff a lot so I need to come up with some stuff that works well with feet. Nice work with your intro.
