Which flamenco pieces sound great an... 

...still pivoting off the "easiest PDL" to play thread, and going outside PDL to look for great flamenco music that doesn't force one to sacrifice the 'hard parts' - the question can be even more pointed.

Fast picado is the limiting factor for most pieces.

So I thought the question should be "which flamenco pieces sound good and do not have blazing picado"....or if there are some fast picado parts, they are very short and don't require that stamina that the longer runs need.

In my early days I purchased flamenco CD's from Spain from Flamenco Connection, and would call the owner Guierrmo to ask for recommendations....when asking for CD's that had flamenco music that was more 'approachable' than PDL, he recommended Quique Paredes. I just listened to one of his pieces, and it does seem to be very flamenco with less blazing picado runs...yet very tasteful.

Paco Cepero also has some pieces with shorter picado runs - but, they are very fast.

Anything by Diego del Morao. But then trying to learn it you’ll find that picado is the least of your worries 🤣

Paco Pena tends to not use a lot of picado.
But he does do a lot of ligado which he is extremely good at.
