Stuart here,

I've been learning/playing flamenco guitar for a little over three years now, and prior to that played banjo for several years, though let's face it, the banjo all sounds a bit samey after a while, especially compared to flamenco, and we have a little finca in Andalucia so it seems rude not to !

Self taught, mainly from Juan Martin's books. Quite pleased in that I seem to be making a bit of progress recently, my compas is becoming more coherent (even my Bulerias is no longer just painful random strumming), and I've done a lot of right hand work, so most techniques are coming along. Quite exciting really, though I'm sure I can't hold a candle to most folks on here.

Cheers !

Welcome to the foro!

Cool,about your progress, I'm about in the same place or behind you some.

Was actually playing a classical piece in 3/4 with the metronome and when I was working the last two bars that were kicking my ass I found I was battling the metranome and then it hit me. After playing compas with the accent on he third beat for so long, two years, I couldn't put the accent in the first beat for the Clasical piece as I was counting with the metranome. That's when I realized I had inbeded the compas deep into my organic metranome.



I prefer my flamenco guitar spicy,
doesn't have to be fast,
should have some meat on the bones,
can be raw or well done,
as long as it doesn't sound like it's turning green on an elevator floor.
