This Arpeggio study (in both Standard Notation & TAB) builds independence and clarity for each finger as they all feature the melody at some point throughout the composition.

Simple melody yet deceptively complex technically to create solid, balanced tone throughout.

Enjoy! And feel free to email me with any questions.

(Transcribed in Standard Notation & TAB) This is the first falseta in the song "Tangos Alumnar" from my album FLAMENCO (appearing at the 0:11 mark). This song is a collection of falsetas I had created for my guitar students over the years and I thought it would be fun to put them altogether into a tune so they could hear the falsetas in context as a WHOLE. This falseta is very basic. Really easy timing and using the Pulgar and Indice (Thumb & Index) from the Right Hand. Use a rest stroke for your thumb and a free stroke for your index. The hard part of the falseta is in the last 3 measures...watch out for the rhythmic syncopation here and work slowly to build up to the Marote Rasgueado that appears in the last measure.

Enjoy! And feel free to email me with any questions.

(Transcribed in Standard Notation & TAB) This is a very "flamenco" falseta, appropriately so since it's from my album FLAMENCO. The syncopation in this falseta is worthy of some heavy-duty study on its own. Spend time to get to know the music and listen to the song from the album (the falseta appears at the 0:32 mark). This is a Pulgar (Thumb) heavy falseta so get your Alzapúa ready to go!

Enjoy! And feel free to email me with any questions.

In my experience, I have found that many students of the classical guitar have previous guitar experience and that many start out very unfamiliar with classical guitar repertoire. I wanted to create a "bridge" composition. A composition that would appeal to most guitarists and hopefully serve as a bridge to the profound world of classical guitar music and arrangements.

About the piece... Ombre Danzanti (Dancing Shadows) starts at midnight. As darkness completely engulfs the plaza you hear the cathedral bell strike one. The shadows start to emerge. Slowly at first but as they are convinced they won't be seen they show less timidity and allow the night and the music to take them wherever they wish. I imagine them getting carried away, going beyond their usual dancing madness to where they are enjoying themselves a little too much. They collapse with exhaustion. The recapitulation of the first melody signals their realization their night is coming to a close. With despair and melancholy they realize that their joy will never see the light of day. They decide to make the best of it and have one last dance, they know they won't have another chance, the days are long, the nights are short, and then, the dawn.
