soy nuevo en GMC, y me he apuntado, en parte por tus falsetas y en parte por los riff de Gabriel Leopardi.
La granaina está muy bien. Es tuya? es muy bonita.
ya la he sacado. Con los videos a camara lenta y desde todos los angulos es muy asequible.
A ver si sigues colgando estas falsetas tan bonitas.
Un saludo desde Murcia.
Hi GMC members! Glad to see you again. The lesson we have today is a toque of Granaína. This style is derived from fandango (one of the most primitive musical forms of flamenco). The Fandango was a musical form that mixed a traditional song with arabian melodies; it has an extraordinary popularity in XVIII and XIX centuries, so various regions of Andalucía and the zone of Levante created his own fandango, with a particular differences. Málaga created Malagueña, and the same Huelva (Fandango de Huelva, with ¾ time signature), Ronda (Rondeña), Murcia (Murciana and Taranta) and Granada (Granaína). So you can define Granaína as a fandango of Granada.
The style is deep and intense, and tonality is B phrygian. I´ve used capo in the first fret.
A comment about tab. I write the score changing continuosly the time signature. This is a good option to organize the grupetto of notes, because this allows you to understand properly the phrase; besides, we can guide better in the comments of small parts. But you must know that actually there is no specific time signature in granaina. To performing the piece correctly, don´t think here in compás (time signature), but in the line of each phrase. The melody marks the start and the end of phrase, and not bars. (Although you can see the different bars in the tab). The breathe and the character of the whole must be performed by you as your own taste. Try to put something of yourself in the performing, because this is the way that the piece, actually, can born.
