  • Hi everyone, and welcome to another issue of flamenco series for beginners! Today we are going to play a little Seguiriya. This style developes its' music in cicles of five beats in Alternating Time (Simple and Compound; ¾ an 6/8). Many times singers refers to this toque as a “cante grande”, (big singing) as a synonymous of important, serious and great.

    Techncically we will use some possibilities of thumb and a couple of different rasgueos, and, on the left hand, it appears some usual flamenco chords inversions and legato phrases.


    Key is A phrygian.

    But less talking and more playing.

    Let´s start!
