New release, available now: Streaming Classes from Niño de Pura - Técnicas Esenciales de la Guitarra Flamenca.
"Hi, I am Niño de Pura and before we start our classes, I would like to say a few words. Many of you have wondered how to play an arpeggio, how to play rasgueados, how to hold your guitar…Those questions are quite common because, until now, there was no defined school to learn it. We've always had less possibilities as the classical guitar and learned from those who went before us like Ramón Montoya, Niño Ricardo, Sabicas, Paco de Lucía, each handling the guitar in their own way. But now there is a defined school to help you, a clear way to teach you that through my exercises and my experience".
Niño de Pura demonstrates in the most detailed manner different variations of all essential flamenco guitar techniques such as picado, arpeggio, alzapua, rasgueos, tremolo...The demonstrated compositions include Pa'Pura (Guajira), Alegrías del Kiki (Alegrías) and Tocando el Cielo (Taranta). All replayed slowly on a split screen with close ups of both the left and right hands.
