Tangos Flamencos

This quote is from flamenco-guitars.com:

"Tangos flamencos, not to be confused with the Argentine tango, comprises flamenco palos such as Tangos, Tientos, Farruca, Garrotín, Rumba and Tanguillos, plus other rare palos such as Marianas. Tangos flamencos have arisen in the regions of Cádiz, the principal port of the Spanish Navy since the 18th century."

Here is a simple but solid Tangos falseta utilizing the power of the "flamenco thumb" apoyando technique, plus a little picado thrown in for good measure.

Tangos Falseta 3 - Miguel Aragón/Paco de Lucía

This is a great little falseta I learned from Miguel Aragón while studying in Sevilla in 1999. It's not difficult to play but is very satisfying. I believe the ending segment is from Paco de Lucía, or a variation perhaps. Capo III.

Tangos Falseta 4 - Paco de Lucía

This Paco Tangos falseta is my first attempt at syncing my microphone audio with the camcorder video. Garageband and iMovie are supposed to work together, but it's a bit of a learning curve for sure.

I ended up having to re-record the audio, so there's a couple spots where I'm not quite playing what's in the video LOL but I did a decent job overall I think. Metronome is 140 bpm, nice and relaxed for learning. Capo III.
