The Joy of Spanish Guitar
What you’ll learn
Play 12 pieces of exciting Spanish Guitar Music from fiery flambouyant flamenco in pieces such as Fiesta and Grenadinas to the famous Malaguena, the romantic La Catedral and the haunting sounds of Soledad which draws on Andalucia’s amazing Moorish legacy. All these pieces are exciting to play and listen to and perfect for performing to family and friends and as recital pieces in public concerts.
This course presents students with 12 pieces of recital music influenced by Spanish culture and includes Flamenco as in ‘Fiesta’ and ‘Grenadinas’ to the traditional ‘Malaguena’ the romantic ‘La Catedral’ and haunting ‘Soledad’ which reflects Andalucia’s Moorish legacy.
At the start of this course I have presented a lecture which will teach students how to master the’Rasquerdo’ the flambouyant form of strumming which makes this style of music so exciting to play. I have also added tips on how to strum effectively, achieve higher arpeggio speeds and on how to produce richer sounds by using vibrato.
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for Classical, or even other Fingerstyle guitarists of intermediate standard who have reached a minimum Grade 4 (Associated Board or Trinity-Guildhall) level of playing. A knowledge of basic chords is an advantage.
