Here’s another technique that’s unique to flamenco – Alzapua. As with any technique, the trick is to begin slowly and to choose some slow, easy material so you can get the technique under control before trying to speed it up. I’ll let you guys play with this for a few days and then I’ll post some more material to mess around with.

    Thank you

    Does this also refer to the slowness of your
    New calendar or do I need to beg for one?
    I threw last year’s away wishing I hadn’t now.

    Compliments to Kai and your site.

    After nearly fifty years fraught with raising a family and then seasoned by arthritis and bad nails from psoriasis, I recently strung my old JuanAlvarez, and nothing happened. Much frustration.

    I could hear falsetas in my head, a bit, but my fingers couldn’t deliver. It’s not like riding a bicycle… you do indeed forget.

    Kai brings back late 50’s and early 60’s “show-me-how you-do-that” sessions in L.A. But he does it with the careful guidance and breakdown that I never got from the guys who said things like… “Sabicas showed me this, see if you can do it while I get another beer.”

    Watching these videos, I may once again be able to call that useless
    thing that dangles from my hand a pulgar. Many thanks!
