Subject: RE: Flamenco Music
There is an evolutionary tree of certain falsetas that can define the progression of a flamenco style of guitar that we can define as 'modern.' It shows how today's modern flamenco guitar style developed from the styles of the last century of geniuses who preceeded it. Specific examples are drawn from the family tree of Ramón Montoya – Sabicas – Mario Escudero – Paco de Lucia. No claim is made that this is the only possible evolutionary true pathway for the development of modern flamenco. It is however, one of the true pathways by which I believe Flamenco Teds style has developed.
