D.-Video Recommendation of the Week
1) Paco de Lucía - Monasterio de Sal (Colombianas) 1986

This video is a treasure recently found. Paco was at his highest and he just played perfectly this beautiful piece, improvising and adding amazing stuff harmonically and melodically... He played it even better than in the record. Look how he inserts the phrygian chord at min 1:40, although this piece is on major key he make it become dramatic.

 
 
2) Joes Wieggers - Bulerias Cante Accompaniment

Everybody can play flamenco!!! No nationality, creeds, or Spanish laguage needed, just having fun and love for flamenco... Joes is from Netherlands and he plays amazing!!!
