Flamenco Guitar in 48 lessons by Jose Manuel Montoya
4 progressive Flamenco Guitar course in 48 lessons for all levels including those who have no notion of the guitar or musical theory yet. The methodology that is being used is the same as that used by Jose Manuel Montoya in his private classes. The basic techniques that are being studied are applied from the beginning to the most attractive flamenco forms “Palos”: Tangos, Soleá, Bulerías, and Fandango de Huelva, making the study more enjoyable.
The learning methodology is designed to study one lesson per week, and practice half an hour daily at the beginning of the course and from the third month, one hour a day. Jose Manuel Montoya leads to apply this same course for years, and it is GUARANTEED that by the end of this course, students will reach the level of Flamenco Guitar as shown in the following audios, plus a full mastery of the technique.
|Soleá||Bulerías||Fandango de Huelva||Tangos|
Toward the end of the course, the last volume includes videos of these 4 “palos” complete with two different audios: Full (Guitar & Percussion) and without guitar so that students can practice with Percussion (palms and cajón). It also has two video options with different points of view.
Along the course, both hands, shot from different angles so not a single detail is lost, are shown on the screen. The chord diagrams and rhythm are graphically displayed as well.
