I am not only new to this forum but fairly new to flamenco. I have played guitar for 20 years. I love this instrument but grew up playing the electric guitar and like many guitarist, heard the illustrious roll of the fingers that is most guitar players first introduction to flamenco. Now I am here, ready to put that metronome on slooowww and train that mind muscle connection to flamenco, OLÉ!

You seem like a lively passionate bunch. I love the luthiers on the boards. This is the only guitar forum I have ever joined as I think the people and the information I have discovered in this space appears to be more specific and intimate not just to flamenco, but the nuances of the instrument. It seems to me everyone here understand there instrument is made of wood, comes from the earth, and is an amazing vehicle for creativity.

Looking forward to contributing!


P.S. Of course I joined because I want help picking out a guitar....

Welcome to the foro, Thomas!


You seem like a lively passionate bunch.

That's one way to put it.

Welcom Tomas,

A lively bunch indeed! Couple regulars posters here build respected Flamenco guitars: Faulk is in Japan, Eden is on the west coast near Seattle, and Culpepper on the east north of NYC. There are a few others who list in the for sale section. Best to start a thread with a list of what you want , price point, woods, new or used, anything else about your playing to steer the professionals in the right direction.



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.
