Best resource for getting back into ... 

I haven't played for quite some time, but I feel the urge. I used to use didactic material from Manuel Granados with CDs, but I would like to know if anyone can recommend newer material with online or MP3 audio and tabs?

I would say my level was borderline intermediate but consider me a beginner again.

This is in spanish. His channel is full of cool lessons. How about refreshing your compas for various forms. Check it out!!

Simon a couple again in Spanish but I'm sure you are up to speed there.

This one is Anders's old mate in Huelva. Has his own style but muy flamenco. And easy to communicate with. He has lots of free stuff on Youtube so you can taste and try before you buy as Savoy Brown once said.

[I'll do the second suggestion in the next post as in review the two links interfere with each other ]

Paco Costa is creating his course but has Tech, Fandangos, and solea complete and Bulerias almost complete. But what I find most useful are his asesorias that he holds almost every week. He responds to individual requests on one-to-one or live in the asesorias. And will address any issue even way beyond his course material scope.

We discuss cante, bailar, pop, fusion, any palo, you name it. And all recorded so you can go back over them at leisure. Worth checking.

Simon I think these days you have two routes outside the in person teacher. You have many offering individual skype lessons which I personally find very helpful and you have the more formatted website/tutorial structure which I find are good for more convenience and learning at leisure but will never be as in depth as a real interaction like via skype or in person. I've been down both paths, just something to consider when narrowing down.

Great to hear you're getting back into flamenco guitar!!

It's certainly not the best source (there's less than 3 pages so far), but have you tried the tab that was recently uploaded in the tabs section? It's something I transcribed after about 12 months of no guitar. It's from a YouTube uploaded of Rito y Geografía (which is arguably the best source), so you can use YouTube's slow down functions or just download and loop on vlc etc.

RE: Best resource for getting back i... (in reply to Dudnote

Thanks for all your suggestions and offers. I am not looking for tuition at the moment, my basic techniques and compás were pretty good but I am short on any newer exercise material, which I prefer tabbed with audio.

This is a very life affirming post! Thanks for making it. We've all (no doubt you in the past as well) been there, or near it. I guess what goes around...

newer exercise material
if you mean exercises and/or "study" type of thing as opposed to falsetas the only thing that comes to mind is Oscar Herrero "ESTUDIOS PARA GUITARRA FLAMENCA" in 3 volumes at different levels, inicial, intermediate and advanced (but I think other people have also published so-called "flamenco studies"). They are sort of in the form of falsetas, but each one devoted to a single technique. Not sure if they are available as ebooks and mp3 though. They are probably findable on scribd or something, not sure how you would then access the audio, but probably also findable.

Also Gerardo Nuñez Encuentro is available to stream from La Sonanta, and the first half is exercises/studies in focused on individual techniques; https://www.lasonantaclasses.com/categories/gerardo-nunez-online-guitar-video-classes

Yes, kind of. I made the mistake of learning too many falsetas and not enough of how they are joined together to make sense, as opposed to eventually, just noodling. I may just dig out my Granados books, if I can find them in the stuff I shipped from England.

For some reason, I am not a big fan of online video tutorials. Too much like copying rather than understanding, which I find when studying from paper and practising to a metronome. Always helps to have the audio, of course.

RE: Best resource for getting back i... (in reply to Escribano

I have those old Manuel Granados books packed away and would also like to start dabbling in flamenco again. However, I don't even own a CD player now so I'm wondering if there's a place to download those accompanying tracks? Anyone?

I think I ripped them some years ago. If I come across them, I'll let you know.

The encuentro videos by the greats are really inspiring and tabbed also. Also writing your own falsetas is good alternative. Or learning a bit of improvisation.

You could check out this. Created by Dario Piga - I would've probably never found it but a friend was involved in the project and recommended it to me. Good stuff in there and it's not expensive.https://www.melbay.com/Products/30682MEB/progressive-exercises-for-flamenco-guitar.aspx
