Harmonizing Flamenco from the guitar
This book is aimed at all musicians who want to learn about flamenco harmony through the flamenco instrument par excellence, the guitar. This book analyses 166 falsetas (variations) from numerous eras, comprising a wide range of 'palos' - soleá, tangos, bulerías, siguiriyas, fandangos and more - from the most emblematic guitarists in the history of flamenco. It is not only a vital tool for understanding and transcribing the music of the great maestros of the genre but also provides clear, comprehensible explanations of flamenco composition.
