Great, thanks for posting. I love that sound, too, it's got some special dry punch too it. How does he get it? Short nails and well planted, powerful strokes, is my guess. What do you guys think?

Wow! Great groove indeed. Watching the foot tapping was also very helpful. Good find Arash.

So he plays lefthanded? me too. My theory is that lefthandeds have less problems in learning things for the lefthand (rasg, arp, etc). But more problems with right hand.

Good find. I like the stuff he plays here:

First one is Rumba, Rondena, then classical?, at last Bulerias.

I liked this sentence from a review of a Journalist on the myspace page:

quote:

A flamenco guitarist strikes while the iron is hot.


LOL! Again here we have gay symbolics in flamenco... ok could be also a non-gay metaphor.

hey arash,

this is myrddin de cauter, he is a belgian flamenco guitarist who has studied a while in spain, I know him, he has recorded two cd's now with even a tangos in dutch.
He plays most of the time a sort of classical music mixed with flamenco but he is an awesome guitarplayer and a great person with a lot of love and passion for the art

Met him this summer in Gerardo's class. He was a real treat to see playing up close. He was not a real loud player, but I loved his speed, clearity, and original ideas.

He's obviously very talented but to be honest the falsetas didn't do it for me at all. They seemed noodly, very technical but without much musical point. I found the one at 3:13 especially frustrating, it was a great idea and he could have gone in a number of really cool directions... and then did nothing with it. That's just me and my tastes though. Great rhythm, great groove, great technique, for sure.

Sometimes it is not just taste, maybe sometimes things just ARE how you judge them, keeping all those thoughts about subjectivity and solipsism or whatever away! This is the beginning of a musical idea, but the idea is drowned before reaching our minds.

I mean, I know my musical tastes are objective, but I have to couch it in this "oh it's just an opinion" language to avoid pissing some people off.

Instructional DVD - F yeah!!!!

I love his frantic and scattered style. He takes the corners so fast and never seems to fall off. I just like how he seems very daring in his playing style - reminds me of Jeronimo Maya whom I also love.

My feeling also, he his impressive but this is more about 'acrobatics' if you can say that than musicality (based on my tastes of course).

For me it will be dead useless.. I love Myrddin's playing but I've never found a player who I LESS thought I could ever have a chance of sounding like than him

And although I admire him I'd really have no interest in learning his falsetas because they would sound totally out of place with everything else I play.

Ole Myrddin!!

I'm pretty sure most everyone could learn something from a guy who has an approach that is so radical. Even if I had no desire to play his actual falsetas, I'd be interested in seeing how he looks at the guitar and flamenco via a dvd or whatever.

Yeah Andy, I totally hear ya However, I'm with Mark - it would be interesting to see in more detail how he approaches the instrument. I'm happy to purchase it as a performance DVD that I'll hopefully pick up a few ideas from.

And yes, Lucia Nieve is a really good album - definitely worth the price of admission!!
