Learning To Play Spanish Guitar Doesn't Have To Take Years Of Practice...
Learning how to play Spanish guitar or the Flamenco style of guitar playing is a genuine Spanish art form which dates back hundreds of years in Spanish guitar history. It originates from the southern part of the country and gypsies are considered it's forefathers, they had a heavy influence over the style of the music in Spanish guitar songs as too did the traditional songs of Andalusia. Even though numerous broad similarities exist between a classical guitar and a flamenco guitar they are actually very different.
Those who take the time to learn this style are learning a musical form which was born out of many different cultures and influences as Spain was conquered and recaptured throughout its long and varied history. Each culture and era left its own mark and influence upon the music and indeed the language. This is one of the reasons why Spanish guitar is so special - it's a style of music which has a lot of romanticism and passion in its bloodline.
The first mentions of Flamenco guitar in literature appeared in 1774 and it's also in this time that we start to see the first Flamenco schools being created. It is thought that in its earliest form, Flamenco consisted of just voice and rhythmical hand clapping. Important composers such as Julian Arcas were among those responsible for the introduction of the guitar playing. As the decades passed the style of Spanish guitar became more and more refined and ever more famous as great players passed through and brought with them their own innovations and fame to the great art.
It used to be that learning Flamenco guitar was done purely as a means to accompany the dancers however as great virtuosos dedicated themselves with sublime talent to the instrument, the Spanish guitarist established himself as a soloist in his own right and the entire scope of Flamenco became wider. Today Spanish Guitar lessons are available in practically every country around the world - fuelled by the popularity Spanish guitar music and its great scope for expression. Many classic recordings have also been made by both past and present masters which help to document and date the transitions in style and form of modern Spanish guitar. You will find Spanish guitar tabs for many of the most famous recordings and flamenco compositions, they can be a great resource for the modern guitarist interested in learning the style.
If you've never tried to learn this style of guitar before then I would encourage you to begin with some simply Spanish guitar scales such as the A harmonic minor. It's one of the most rewarding styles of music you can learn to play on guitar - full of romanticism, passion and fire.
