Cositas Buenas video 

Hi,

Flamenco-world has posted a good quality video of Paco's title song from Cositas Buenas. It is much more pleasing than his website's video. Check it out! Also there is a video interview with him and his fellow musicians there. It is in spanish unfortunately. Good luck getting in to Flamenco-world. The website is obviously swarming with curious flamenco fans. Very slow connection if one at all.

I just listened to the new Paco tangos, and it moved me to wonder, most of all--Was I listening t the same cut that a lot of people just hammered? Because I thought it was very good, and it's hard for me to fathom where this negative criticism is coming from.

Oh yeah, it's amazing.

The part in the middle, just before the second cante part, where Paco plays all the way up his fretboard, around a high E, together with the lute(?) player. That is hauntingly beautiful.

It's very good! Everyone else was just in a bad mood. Give the maestro his dues man.

Was it in compas? I don't care if it was or not. Who the heck am I to critique this guy?

Miguel,

If you had watched the PDL website video, I think you might understand why the negative comments. The quality of the video on his site is terrible and does no justice to the piece. I just watched the Flamenco World version and was amazed at the difference in quality. Like Tenshu said, I don't think he played below the 9th fret the whole time! That's what separates us hackers from the best in the world.

I was so impressed I saved it to my desktop to use it as a study tool. I think they made a big mistake even having the lousy quality video on his site.

I now am a believer!

RE: Cositas Buenas video (in reply to Tenshu

Yeah, that part is sweet. Along with the beginning. Very pretty. If I read the Flamenco-world album rundown correctly, Paco actually plays all the lute/mandola/bouzouki parts himself on the recording. In fact, you can see at two instances near the end of the video that he is indeed playing the lute part himself. It's just after the last singing part. He repeats the singing melody line on guitar, and then he goes on to a climactic tremolo/trill with guitar and lute. On "Luzia" he did nearly all lute etc... parts as well. He's so cool!

Yeah, El Zurdo was right, I was wrong.

I think the other clip was so badly compressed that it threw the whole thing out completely.

The flamenco-world video puts it in perspective - great bass, gave me goose-bumps; and I like the lute, if that is what it is.

Some fine production qualities in there.

I stand corrected. He is still pushing the envelope and thinking hard about what he is doing.

Great barre confidence and technique.

I like Amir Haddad from "Understanding Flamenco".
Still trying to get my head around his technique.

LOL!

Hi Tom,

How about in compas?

I've played (and still do) Jazz.

When you are improvising, sometimes you make a false note.
You can see that as a fault, no problem.
When you play it again, in the same way, the false note is legal!!!!!, you have just made a new "composition"!!!!!!!!!!!


That's how music and art works. For You, paco and perhaps for me

Well I've been really studying the new PdL video. I've managed to get one part down EXACTLY. Just as good as Paco himself.

You know at the end of the song when you can see and hear his footsteps? I can move my feet exactly with his getting the same sound and timing of each step.

Hey Miguel

I'm so "out of the loop" these days that I didn't know there were bad reports on Paco's latest. I've watched the video off of flamenco-world bunches, and as to the bad reviews all I can tell you is this: There's some folks out there whose whole existence is so screwed that they their sole raison d'etre is to crap in your cornflakes.

Nobody does Paco like Paco. Over thirty freak'n years later and he can still make me "feel that way." That's why I gave him my hat when he took it from me anyway ("Kay-veen, you have more hair than I so I need that hat more.")

Anyone who says that the tangos doesn't have "it" needs a tabasco enema.

It was a chessy mtv style promo...nothing to learn the song from. It is intercut with this interview:
