One of the leading flamenco and classical guitarist/composers of his generation, Adam del Monte has made it his life mission to fully express himself in these two genres, transcending labeling and convention. Always having incorporated a wide array of musical styles in his compositions, del Monte has embarked on a journey of creating a unique sound and language of flamenco that is both steeped in tradition and progressive in its openness to musical flavors from around the world.
Guitarists Adam Del Monte and Mak Grgic have teamed up to form Duo Deloro, which will be exploring music from Spain and Latin America. In their first two GSI videos they play Granados’ Quejas o la Maja y el Ruiseñor from Goyescas (Los Majos Enamorados) as arranged by Ante Cagalj on the 1957 Hauser II (ex. Bream) and the 1969 Segovia Ramirez, and Angel Villoldo’s classic El Choclo on a Lucio Carbone “1888 Torres” and a 2011 Luigi Locatto “1884 Torres SE60”.

The new episode of Scott Wolf’s new podcast All Strings Considered is up, and we’re very happy to announce that GSI is now a sponsor of the podcast (Scott has done such a great job that we want to support him any way we can). Episode 2 features an interview with flamenco guitarist Adam Del Monte and they discuss Adam’s new guitar concerto ‘Paisajes’ growing up in Spain, the flamenco/classical divide and Segovia’s flamenco past. Musical selections include the first movement of ‘Paisajes’, the Rumba from Adam’s latest CD, his interpretation of ‘Sevilla’ and a Balkan-inspired tune in 13/8. Click here to check it out on Scott’s site.
For the finale of this series of lessons from Adam, here’s his lesson on playing faster scales. He’s playing a negra by Alejandro, which he chose because it sounds great but also because it was one of the funnest guitars to play scales on in the showroom. For more from Adam on scales and technique generally you can check out his website, www.NewLearningVision.com.
Adam Del Monte will be premiering ‘Paisajes’, his concerto for flamenco guitar and orchestra at the SGI Auditorium at 525 Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica, 90401 on January 15 at 3:30 pm. This should be really cool, and not the sort of thing you get to see live everyday, so if you’re anywhere near you should try to go. For more info just click here.
Here’s Adam playing an excerpt from the Alegrias on his new CD, ‘Asi Li Siento Yo’ on a new 2011 Felipe Conde FC28 negra. We thought we’d try out recording with backing tracks, the way you might in the studio, so what you’re hearing is the guitar recorded live in the showroom, along with the compás track that was playing in his ear at the time (and then mixed a little in the studio, of course).
Here’s another great lesson from Adam Del Monte, this time on Arpeggio technique, which he points out is the foundation of all right hand technique for the guitar. Adam’s playing a 1977 Antonio Raya Pardo flamenco. For more lessons from Adam you can check out his website – www.NewLearningVision.com.
