Aside from the fact that learning CG would provide you with some dexterity I'd say no. Sure there are similarities - arpeggio technique, for example, but picado has some important differences to CG scale tech, pulgar is totally different and there is a whole repertoire of techniques that aren't found in CG. Add to that the fact that the musical intent is totally different, the sound/tone you are aiming for is different and focus on rhythm is absolute... you'd be better off diving straight into flamenco rather than learning approaches you have to unlearn later.liopro wrote:Hello, I'd like to play both classical and flamenco music, the second being my preferred choice though. Even though there're a similarities between these two styles they're quite different. I read somewhere classical technique is a great foundation for flamenco. Is that true?
I agree entirely with you and Scott. Pepe is a fine classical player but actually the earlier post ironically hits the nail on the head, Pepe lacks soniquete and aire. To a classical guitarist it might sound like the real deal but to flamenco aficionados he simply isn't in the running, there are amateurs on the Foro playing at a higher level than that.liopro wrote:Adam del Monte if I'm not mistaken crosses over back and forth. To me his flamenco side much more distinct As to the Pepe Romero I agree with Scott here. When he plays Sabicas's Bulerias it sounds like another classical piece perhaps a bit more rhythmic if anything. When on the other hand Moraito plays this very same palos it sounds much more authentic. IMHO of course.
