If you want to try something that combines Spanish/strumming/Early Music... you might enjoy some of the music of the composer Santiago de Murcia (try samples of a CD by Rolf Lislevand called Codex, or the de Murcia CD by Richard Savino) also some of the Gaspar Sanz pieces (Try samples of the CD by Xavier Diaz-Latorre called Laberintos Ingeniosos) Not Spanish, but some of the Robert de Visée pieces for Baroque Guitar also have strummed and plucked combinations. (an especially nice one is by Andrea Damiani on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qiwVIXdiU4Conner wrote:Wow, that was very cool !

There is a short few within the Delcamp library. Perhaps some names of Spanish Guitar Composers ?!?!
