RE: Some Baile (in reply to Pgh_flamenco

Rafael Rodriguez has a unique playing style which is exactly my taste. I wonder if it's possible to take private lessons from him. Does anyone here know?

If you don't already know, I doubt your dream is to learn to play flamenco guitar. Otherwise you'd have already made it to Rafael's classes. I think you should stick with your classical guitar and play Recuerdos de la Alhambra or something.

Haha a good one. Actually it's about taking private lessons. I was just playing with the idea. Otherwise I would find out where he spends most of his time. Then I would fly to Sevilla and ask him if he could teach me his style of playing.

Try Facebook. A lot of those guys have a page on there. He's a big name though. Probably won't be easy.

RE: Some Baile (in reply to devilhand

The toque de Rafael is based on the canones, Melchor y Ricardo, whose toque he understands perfectly. On top of this is his character, a great aficionado, a person with much humour, which allows him to play with compas, imitate Diego del Gastor or invent something playful.

If you should have his knowledge of history and technical dominance, still you would never play like him because your character is different.

Start like everybody else, by learning the basics: noone will ever play like you, just as noone will ever play like Paco.

Unfortunately yes.

Some will say I'm sticking to the basics too long. But I hope it will pay off in the long run.
