Music score and tablature
Texts: Spanish and English
The tutorial for flamenco vocals and their accompaniment is the first work that collects all the basic melody lines for the vocals as well as the traditional dance structures written in score, in two-part form: vocals and flamenco guitar (note and number).
The vocals part configures a melodic sample of a traditional song together with its particular stresses, while the guitar part performs an example of accompaniment which includes over 70 flourishes and techniques for both hands.
This material is aimed at guitarists, cantaores/as and bailaores/as.
Also, it will help composers and interpreters of other forms of music to achieve a more comprehensive knowledge of this genre.
Music schools and conservatories where flamenco is taught might find it helpful to include this tutorial in their library and course bibliographies.
The CD included contains all the vocals, performed by cantaor Jorge Mesa "Pirata". There are 3 tracks for each vocals style –one for vocals and guitar, one for guitar only and one for vocals only. All guitar flourishes and accompaniment are also performed.
In the first book the covers Soleá, Caña, Polo, Bambera, Romance, Alboreá, Bulerías, Jaleos, Siguiriya, Serrana, Liviana, Cabales and Dance: Soleá and Siguiriya, music and tablature.
