Calm, yet powerful. Dark, yet uplifting and soul soothing. This song has great contrasting elements and puts me in a reminiscent mood. The perfect setting to listen would be in a beautiful place at a time of solitude.
Another complex bulería. This is the song I listen to when I need some inspiration to study the compás. I’ve been playing flamenco guitar for a few years now and I still have to really focus to be able to feel the compás (rhythm) in this song. If you like this, check out Miguel Poveda – El Alfarero (Bulerías).
This is one of my favorite flamenco songs. Although it’s not easy to follow, it grabs your attention and is a very interesting interpretation of the bulería style. If you like this you might also like Diego del Morao.
A big part of our plans for this trip revolve around us busking. While Rob has busked many times, I have never actually done it, so a few months back I decided to give it a shot for some experience. The rage comic below shows what happened.
Despite my warm welcome, I went on to make $6 that night. 1 from a girl who recognised me from somewhere else, and 5 from a guy who I befriended while his drunk mate tried to play some Led Zeppelin on my ukulele.
I think I’ll just learn on the job.
