Flamenco Guitar Method Volume 1



Description
Flamenco Guitar Method Volume 1. Gerhard Graf-Martinez is a passionate flamenco guitarist and teacher. The wealth of his knowledge is captured in this two-volume work, which also reflects valuable experience gained from his activities as a tutor at national and international seminars and workshops. The CD included with volume 1 contains all the pieces and musical examples for Volumes 1 and 2.

Final Words
This Method is not for beginners to the guitar, although it might serve for beginners to Flamenco: “Notation and tablature are not explained in this book because it assume that everyone knows these facts, as well as the basic techniques of the classical guitar”. Volume 1 is primarily for building technique. 3-finger, 4-finger and continuous rasgueado are covered. Thumb plus rasgueado, progressing to ayudado (thumb plus finger), taps, and the right-hand rhythm for rumba, followed by more advanced types of rasgueado. The book also discuss the flamenco guitar and other features of flamenco like the compas, palmas, nails, etc… A really detailed book dedicated to Flamenco. You’ll need some playing experience to fully utilize this book. Get your copy of Flamenco Guitar Method Volume 1 by Gerhard Graf-Martinez.
