Antonio Rey - Facebook Live 

Has anyone else caught Antonio Rey on Facebook? He frequently does small "Facebook Live" broadcasts late at night or in the early hours - playing at home, noodling on melodies, answering your questions, taking request, demonstrating techniques, etc.

He did one last night jamming with a guy from Puerto Rico.

It's quite a rare treat to see a major player in that context.

Unfortunately, he doesn't record or keep these broadcasts on his timeline - which is a real shame because he treats us to some up-close insight into his playing.

So, catch the next one "live", if you can:

RE: Antonio Rey - Facebook Live (in reply to Ramirez

Agreed. I have him as a friend in Facebook and I have caught him multiple times practicing while live streaming. I don't think I've ever seen life footage of a practice session from such a good player and especially with him willing to answer questions and just "hanging out".

Antonio is a beast as a guitar player yet he is so down to earth. I love that.

well he is live NOW! (9am PDT/12pm EDT)

Thank you for the heads up; I had no idea he does that!

Guess I'll have to stalk his Facebook page. So far nothing. That's too bad they are not saved.

Do you have to be a "Friend" to see the live stream? I uninstalled the Facebook app years ago when I learned of their shady tactics. I've been checking his page in the web browser.

Sweet, thanks! Starting to feel like an old man with this stuff.

Edit- actually, since I can't follow him and he's reached the friend limit I don't think I can get notifications. Oh well...

RE: Antonio Rey - Facebook Live (in reply to Fred Klinge

No problem! I am glad somebody benefited from my post.

I love his new Alegrias. Very nice composition. I also love he asks his audience for input on the compositions and how to structure them.

One thing you will notice with Antonio is that he is an avid smoker. Every time he streams live he is puffing on a cigarette which makes me conclude that every time he practices he is smoking. I don't blame him and of course let people make their own choices and don't judge but I can't help to think of Paco when I see this and how he was taken early from us due to it.

I noticed the same thing and I couldn't figure out what he was smoking at first, but then realized he was rolling his own cigarettes, lol! I work in the health/fitness industry, so it does concern me to see him smoking unfiltered cigarettes, but I understand it's a personal choice. Paco was a two-pack a day guy, from what I understand. Antonio's live feeds are wonderful and I kept delaying my own evening practice to watch him do his thing.

Awww come on missed it again! Are you guys able to follow him?

Something about churning the gears of creativity when playing guitar makes smokers crave nicotine . (Being a former smoker myself ).

When I was in his workshop in last year's festival in Jerez, during the 4 hours of class every morning he would smoke roughly 7 or 8 cigarettes. The year before in Diego del Morao's workshop I think Diego smoked even more. Most of this guys really smoke a lot.

He rolls up his smokes with a filter.
