For the first time, here is a flamenco guitar dvd instruction series produced entirely in the heart of Spain. Intended for those who already have a command of basic classic guitar technique and want to learn the flamenco style, this series of instructional videos explains each technique methodically and thoroughly. In this first volume, Oscar Herrero offers insights on sitting and hand positions and reveals the secrets of thumb/index technique-the "picado", the "picado falseta", and the "golpe". He also demonstrates various "rasgueos" executed with and without the thumb and presents the "tango" and "soleas" rhythms. Booklet included with English and Spanish text and music in notation and tablature. The dvd offers tracks in four languages: Spanish, English, French, and Japanese.
