To access the tutorials on the video, you need to click on the card links that pop up at the relevant sections of the music. Just watch the upper right hand corner of the video screen. Or you can check out the following list of videos that cover the entire piece:
Zorongo Gitano was originally composed by Federico Garcia Lorca and has been adapted into various versions both vocal and instrumental.
In Paco Peña’s version we first hear the original melody played with nice big chords that utilize the Andalusian cadence via Rondena tuning. So, you need to tune your guitar to DADF#BE to play this piece.
After the first section, Peña’s switches to a fiery buleria that expands upon the music presented by the original melody.
The tutorials focus on various flamenco guitar techniques such as pulgar, arpeggio, picado, free stroke, alzapua, and rasgueado. The mixed technique video lessons incorporate several different techniques within a single falseta.
There are plenty of flamenco guitar tabs available over the internet ranging from acceptably accurate to completely wrong. I utilize different sources plus the original music itself to piece together something that is as correct as I my ears can discern :-) Besides, when you have a good video tutorial, you also receive a lesson in how to use your fingers to play the falseta.
