San Francisco , CA (PressExposure) January 14, 2010 -- This release speaks about the greatest flamenco guitarist the world has known: Paco de Lucia. The titan is now 63 years old and he has been playing the guitar for more than 50 years, already these achievements seem impressive.
He has played in numerous concerts, whether with jazz guitar masters Al Di Meola and John Mclaughlin, pianist Chick Corea or his own group, he has traveled around the world to share his music with the world.
"Though his favorite genre is the bulerias, Paco de Lucia has written songs in many different styles like rondenas, rumbas, alegrias and tangos. His alegrias in particular are some of the hardest pieces to play technique-wise. He usually uses a capo on the third fret, and his best known bulerias are the songs "almoraima" and "el chorruelo", both of them are very complex and blisteringly fast. Paco de Lucia bulerias require a level of technique unmatched by any other, so this makes his songs unique" Hober mentions.
The article speaks about the different techniques and ideas Paco de Lucia has used in writing his songs, and he is known as the King of Bulerias because of his original falsetas and mind blowing speed and control on the fretboard.
Paco de Lucia's right hand technique is unparalleled and his elegant position and transition between the different techniques make him a joy to watch besides listen. This is the kind of result one should expect from a genius like him.
Because the favored style of Paco de Lucia is the bulerias, one can deduce that he is fond of parties and that he is not a maniac who spent his life doing nothing but playing the guitar. This artist will be forever known as the greatest flamenco guitarist of the 20th century.
