Flamenco Guitar Lessons reveals secrets, tips, and tricks for mastering flamenco guitar, through a set of very comprehensive video tutorials on Harmony, Techniques, Styles (Palos), and Nails. ALL VIDEO TUTORIALS ARE CLOUD HOSTED on the best and the fastest video cloud server. The most advanced video player with variable speed can be accelerated up to 2.0, or slowed down to 0.75, or 0.50 of the real speed, without changing the pitch of the audio signal. (just press the "gear" button in the video window). That is a great feature for more in-depth analysis and observation of some extra details when needed.
The technically rich Iberian legacy brought every single classical guitar technique into the world of flamenco. That’s why the flamenco guitarists today are on the technical front lines, widening flamenco language and achieving the impossible. On the other hand, the strict classical guitar world, waiting for some piece to be written to embed the technique into the classical guitar heritage, is still late to adopt many fantastic flamenco techniques. Therefore Flamenco Guitar Lessons explores the most important from both worlds.
A special software called Flamenco Multi-Track Loop Player, will enable you to effectively learn the flamenco rhythm (compás) by playing along the highest quality flamenco percussion samples of: cajón (hand drum), palmas (hand claps), shaker, djembe, congas, bongos, maracas...and all the most used percussion instruments in flamenco. Every heavy beat is marked with yellow, and every accented heavy beat - is highlighted with red, so you can easily understand the accents, seeing exactly what is where, and rapidly develop an inner feeling for the compás...

NICOLAS: You couldn’t even imagine how much torture we went through, because in Yemen the download is SO WEEK that a normal video conference lesson was completely out of the question, and not even an audio connection could be ever established normally. So we went sending short videos to one another. For which Samir unfortunately sometimes had to wait a whole day to upload or download, (for just a 90 MB movie… terrible..?!?).
But we are still very proud of what we achieved in communication and understanding…!
The essence of this Video Testimonial is that Samir has learned the flamenco rhythm – COMPÁS – FROM THE SOFTWARE ON THE WEBSITE – LIVING SOME 3000 MILES FROM SPAIN – IN LESS THEN 6 MONTHS…! And on top of everything, I couldn’t even give him a proper live online lesson… Because in Yemen, the video bandwidth is restricted probably on every possible place on the Internet, (we tried every possible video conference software…)
