So strange how cocaine only grows there ... it looks like anywhere else in the world. Oh, did I say that out loud?

What exactly did you enjoy about this video?

I mean I suppose it's funny? and obvs very different.... but is it meant to be tongue in cheek? or just by accident

Interesting observation. Some of those fields could just as easily be in Ontario. The only clue that they weren’t is the absence of large swaths of legal weed along their borders and the incessant sound of chainsaws burping away in the background. Throw in a moose or two and a couple of guys in plaid shirt jackets and wool toques, and you’d never know.

Stu, the dancing in the forrest might be funny but the Camino de Seda piece is great. I mean can you create anything close to it?

RE: I thoroughly enjoyed this flamen... (in reply to mellowmel

Sorry, I misunderstood then. I thought it was something about the video you particularly enjoyed. (As opposed to the music) And I was curious.
I suppose it's kind of fresh in some ways.

😂😂
Seriously?

What I can or can't create is irrelevant.

I didn't actually cast an opinion on the composition.
But my opinion of what pleases my ears is not affected by my ability (or lack of) to create something similar.

And nor should my opinion have any affect on the quality of the piece or the composer's ability. It is what it is.

I don't really like some of Vicente Amigos recent stuff for example. Can I compose and play like him? Most definitely!
Sorry...I mean. No. Obviously.

It’s a coven of flamenco dancers. ;-)

Is Don still a member of the foro?

RE: I thoroughly enjoyed this flamen... (in reply to Stu

Stu, no worries, mate. Maybe Don Soledad got offended. Not me. I just enjoy anything related to flamenco.
Anyways, I’ve been playing flamenco guitar for 15 yrs and creating a flamenco piece is not the same as just copying one, as everyone knows. Its a totally diffent league of talent. And about playing like Vicente? I mean who can play like that?! lol

Pgh_flamenco, I don’t know if Don Soledad still posts here but I know he is having his first ever online concert on Aug. 29. Its only $6 if you want to check it out. He has a great flamenco female dancer & a few other musicians as well.
