Study baroque guitar all the same stuff. It’s from colonial times when baroque guitars and all the variants were played in the Spanish and Portuguese colonies.

...y venezolanos


Ramzi - don't try this on your guitar (unless you don't need your nails) - these things are very lightly strung, with a soft action.

Ramzi,
You need more enchiladas and tamales in your diet

Here it is in the usual context. I though you might like this, Ramzi, as you have some background in social dancing

Mexicanos.


I don't know much about Mexican music, beyond a basic familiarity with son huasteco and son jarocho, but an old friend of mine is a specialist in these styles and recorded this atmospheric video on location.



For anyone with Mexican interests, I recommend Alec's other videos and links. He's a fine artist, particularly as a printmaker immersed in local tradition.

Music, beer, cocktails, food, open friendliness and the colours are the best I have ever experienced, anywhere. West Africa comes a close second

The joropo is actually musica llanera from the plains of Venezuela and Colombia, but here's a Mexican version of "Alma Llanera"--the "second national anthem of Venezuela"--by Los Tres Reyes.



As usual, Gilberto Puente does something astounding on requinto. Besides demonstrating how rasgueados on the tres might be done by a mutant superhuman, he makes hia Juan Pimentel requinto sound like the arpa venezolana at 1:40.

RE: Sacrilege and blasphemy! (in reply to rombsix

My parents divorced when I was 6 months old, my mom remarried a Mexican /scots guy who’s mother was from Andalusia and who’s father was a Scottish ranch manger in Mexico. My step father’s family moved from Spain to Mexico ranch country as his grandfather was a Spanish rancher who started a new ranch in Mexico. My step dads mother eloped with the ranch manager when she was 15 or 16 and her father disowned her. They moved to Southern California to avoid the girls father from killing the Scotsman.

Which all means the first ten years of my life were spent going to the Mexican market on Sunday mornings to buy tamales and other Mexican foods. So my advice to Ramzi is to eat more tamales.

( three of my younger sisters are 1/4 Andalusian, they look like they are from Sevilla. But I’m the one in the family who’s interested in Spanish culture, the toe head. )

I don't know what that guy is saying but I know 2:03 is what I want to do to my guitars whenever someone says there is a wire buzzing in the electronics

RE: Sacrilege and blasphemy! (in reply to estebanana

My wife's grandmother emigrated from Andalucía in the early part of the 20th century during the famine.

Legend has it that her great-grandfather was a Japanese arrival in Mexico City. Her father is of indigenous stock. She looks Spanish with some Aztec and perhaps a hint of Japanese.

I am of Irish-Scots-English origin and now with Irish citizenship courtesy of my Grandfather. My relatives nearly all emigrated to the USA and Australia.

Contrary to Brexit and MAGA, the world has always turned and it always will.

Are you referring to a specific "someone" by any chance?

Not your guitar, someone's guitar.

They murdered and dismembered a good flamenco guitar in order to figure out how to make a Mexican vihuela better???
