Flamenco Guitar Maestro Classes by Jeronimo Maya

In La Sonanta's 4th edition of the Flamenco Guitar Maestro Classes 'Caño Roto', Jerónimo Maya, the direct descendent of flamenco guitar legend Ramon Montoya, invites us all to learn his Canorroto flamenco guitar techniques and playing. Jeronimo guides you through his specific techniques of Rasgueados, Picado, Arpeggio, el Cantor and Legado. Jeronimo not only demonstrates these techniques separately, but also in practice, by playing 4 complete compositions, replayed slowly on a split screen with close ups of the left and right hands and a partial dynamic on-screen compas. The accompanying book provides authentic transcriptions, written by Max Herzog in close collaboration with Jeronimo in both standard music notation and tablature. The DVD includes in depth interviews with Jeronimo and his famous family, discovering the origins of his incredible talent from an early age, the importance of his family, his roots and philosophy of music. The DVD also includes performances with his family and studio artists. In the summer of 2013 Jerónimo Maya will also release his new flamenco CD 'Como Soy' published by La Sonanta and produced by José Luis Garrido of the legendary flamenco studios Musitron.
