This was here the whole time? 

Hello everyone,

Just a few days ago I came across this site, there's a lot of great info on this foro! Don't know how I missed it. A big thank you to all contributors, this is quite a reminder to me of how the internet has connected the world.. I have a lot of homework to do :)

Little about me.. I'm in my late 20s, been under a rock and have played guitar for little over a decade, been practicing the flamenco ways for about 5 years now, it's been a very fun ride! Big Sabicas lover, seems standard . it's fascinating learning the variables surrounding the flamenco world, techniques, watching the masters, the cante, culture and all. It's really grown on me. Can't say I'm a purist, but this definitely holds a special place in my heart. Cheers to all from Arizona!

RE: This was here the whole time? (in reply to Coyote

Welcome to the Foro, Coyote. Although I spent a career in the US Foreign Service assigned to Embassies abroad as well as Washington, DC, I grew up in Arizona and still consider it my second home. My wife and I have lived in the Washington, DC area for several years since retirement, but we just spent five weeks in Tempe-Scottsdale, Arizona. Plan to anchor ourselves there when we find the right house.

I am a big fan of Sabicas as well. In flamenco (and other genres), I go for the old classics.

Where do you live in Arizona?

Cheers,

Bill

Who is this "Sabicas" you're all talking about?
Wasn't he a student of the great Ottmar Liebert?

Barkell - I grew up in lettuce town Yuma but I'm living in Tucson as the moment, just moved here recently actually. Maybe not as outgoing as Phoenix but it's a fairly short drive from here. Have some good friends there also.

Piwin - I think he's some tortilla flipper or something. Manos calientes!

Kitarist- I've been wanting to learn some more Sabi classics (like the beautiful zapeton in re), but I've been digging into some basic classical repertoire recently *dodges rocks thrown*. I feel I skipped a number of basics! Technique wise I've been working on my abanicos.. took me forever to find that terminology. 5 years late into these specific strums but better than never!

Su hermana, Labios Calientes, era famosa por su capacidad para generar una duende muy intenso cuando bailaba el martinettes de reggaeton en una minifalda.

Ella murió trágicamente y completamente loca, y fue vista por última vez gritando en el desierto "¡Debes decirme Maestro Sabicas, no sé si debería escribir rageo, rasqueando o rasgueando!"
