Gerhard Graf-Martinez is a passionate flamenco guitarist and teacher. The wealth of his knowledge is captured in this two-volume work , which also reflects valuable experience gained from his activities as a tutor at national and international seminars and workshops.
The CD included with volume 1 contains all the pieces and musical examples for volumes 1 and 2. Besides being a pure pleasure to listen to - "Flamenco puro" - it also conveys the authentic sound and the pulsating "comp?s" of this music. This is the only way to learn to play the music properly yourself.
Also available in German editions (ED 8253 and ED 8254)
