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. 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 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 flamenco rhythm - compás...

I am perhaps too subjective because i am having private online video conference lessons with Nicolas, but I believe I am objective enough when i say that these are absolutely the best and the most clear Harmony tutorials I could imagine. I learned the same 2 years of Harmony i was thought in Music High School – in like 2 weeks with Nicolas. We often laugh on the subject, because “i have the best teacher on the planet”. This all accelerated my classical guitar studies beyond every expectation, thank you Nicolas…!!!

Needing clear and healthy comparison between Indian Sitar, and Spanish Guitar, this course is exactly what i wanted. The nails tutorials are a true wonder! But the personalized approach from Nicolas is the best thing ever. There are fantastic video links, and extremely helpful information on the Nicolas BLOG page. This site changed my perspective totally, thank you!
