How To Use The Website


When you log in, the website structure is almost “exactly the same”. First of all, please note that the guitar lessons in the video tutorials (all 7 + hours of them) are JUST ONE SEGMENT OF THE WEBSITE. Because in the main menu in /The Method/Flamenco Styles  – there are FULL video tutorials PLAYLISTS, with appropriate LOOP PLAYERS, and also the PDF files below the main video window. While in /Software And Tools/menu –  there are corresponding SOFTWARE & TOOLS, (multi-track software players, a tuner, a scale finder…) with their OWN, DEDICATED (and world unique) FLAMENCO AUDIO SAMPLES DATABASES.


The Flamenco Guitar Lessons PDF Book should be printed out first, to have a hard copy of all the note text/score and tabs:

– Flamenco Guitar Lessons Online School PDF Book   (67 pages)

 


Presuming that your nails on start will be in the process of forming, it is best to use this time to start with HARMONY lessons. So, it would be best to start the NAILS tutorials simultaneously with the INTERVALS tutorials:

After understanding the diatonic scale, or we can say “the dispositions of the natural semitones in C major/A minor” – we can proceed with SCALES & CHORDS, together with the GUITAR & PROPERTIES tutorials. But to start playing the guitar as well, we should simultaneously start with TECHNIQUES guitar lessons, and the first, of course – PICADO:

Understanding the difference between the APOYANDO and TIRANDO playing, and when which to use – is ABSOLUTELY THE MOST CRUCIAL ELEMENT IN BUILDING THE TONE ON THE SPANISH GUITAR. So, with the nails now at least partially formed, we must continue the development of the techniques. To start using both APOYANDO and TIRANDO techniques properly, right after PICADO (that is “apoyando”) – we must continue with the ARPEGIO (that is “tirando”). The best and absolutely the fastest way to master the most important Arpegio type on the Spanish guitar – is the most famous CLASSICAL GUITAR MASTERPIECE – ANONYMOUS ROMANCE. And right after that – there are guitar lessons on two of the most important, most beautiful, and the most ever studied Arpegio musical studies from the TWO FATHERS of Classical Guitar, Fernando Sor & Francisco Tarrega:

Of the biggest help in understanding the COMPÁS for any of the FLAMENCO STYLES will be the specially developed set of different software players:
First, the set of SINGLE-TRACK FLAMENCO LOOP PLAYERS – which are located under the main video window on all “palos” pages. But there is a whole page, dedicated to just to all 4 SINGLE-TRACK FLAMENCO LOOP PLAYERS, in the “Software & Tools” menu as well. 
And second, (also in the “Software & Tools” menu), the specially developed MULTI-TRACK LOOP PLAYERS – are designed to give us the deepest possible insight into the very essence of the flamenco groove and its accents. All the audio tracks in both RUMBA & TANGOS (binary) and BULERIAS & ALEGRIAS (ternary) MULTI-TRACK loop players, with their dedicated sample sets databases – ARE THE HIGHEST QUALITY ORGANIC RECORDINGS OF REAL INSTRUMENTS. Their slight “off the grid” hitpoints locations is what gives them a “human touch”. It makes them a WORLD UNIQUE database that can simply NEVER BE BORING TO OUR EARS. It has nothing to do with a rhythm machine! It is, in fact, a part of a MULTITRACK RECORDING SOFTWARE with SOLO/MUTE buttons and VOLUME slider, just like the multitrack recorder console in any digital music production studio of today. It is offering the clearest insight into the production of flamenco music. … (The bigger the screen, the better insight into the flamenco compás you will have..!)
