Melbourne Guitar Lessons. Studio Visit. The Professional World of Recording

At the Creative Guitar School here in Melbourne located in the Eastern Suburbs, we believe students should have insights into the professional world from early stages in their  guitar learning.

We encourage and thrive for strong relationships with the professional community to expose career opportunities that can develop and focus creative potential .

Over 20 students explored the world of music production and all it´s processes from tracking , overdubbing mixing and mastering. They acquired knowledge in microphone techniques, signal processing and digital media .

We all visited the Black Pear Studios in Moorabin: A state of the art complex featuring a 72 channel SSL 4000 E series console  The studio has a collection of over 350 microphones, 350 vintage and boutique pedals, more than 130 top quality guitars and an endless supply of outboard signal processing gear.

It was a successful rewarding Friday afternoon for all attendees. Stay tuned for more.

The Flamenco Sound

Generally since I have lived in Spain for over 32 years  I am considered  a flamenco guitarist. I must say that I love the flamenco melodic and harmonic colors but this is only one style of music that I thrive on.

I have learnt flamenco coming from a western background so I have had to relate to previous knowledge for it´s understanding.

Let´s make it real simple , you get the blues sound by playing the blue notes. Flamenco is very similar You get the flamenco sound by playing the flamenco notes. In Blues if you do not play the blues sound often then it sounds strange. In Flamenco if you do not play the flamenco sound, the notes that sound flamenco then it also sounds strange.

Spanish Guitar Duo, Unique Latin Flamenco Music

The Spanish guitar allows the performer to reflect mother nature´s  beauty through music.The following blog post shows some insights on how to bring together two harmonic instruments of same or different timbres and have both performers be heard with clarity without the need of much amplification.

I am also a strong believer that all performers should have knowledge of improvisation which slowly will allow society to  move away from the present western  concept of classical music  and possibly restore the true value of composition and music.

Melbourne Spanish Guitar. La Guajira Flamenca

Thomas Lorenzo expands on flamenco styles. Music appreciation is an added value to all his event planning here in Melbourne.

His love for music defines his need in sharing his knowledge with fellow friends and musicians.

Flamenco guitar books incorporate complicated descriptions of the patterns we use in it´s styles. I believe the explanation can be simplified as music is only a simple reflection of human emotions.

Flamenco as all styles of music has a specific pulse, a heartbeat that we communicate on and with. La guajira is really a ¾ rhythm and a waltz style of music.

La Farruca. Flamenco by Spanish Guitarist Tomas Lorenzo

La Farruca. Flamenco by Spanish Guitarist Tomas Lorenzo

Farruca is a form and style of flamenco music. It may be performed with lyrics ( vocals) and as most flamenco styles in can also be danced to. It is played in 4/4, interpreted at a relative slow tempo and accompanied by melody and harmony defining a minor key.

In the following examples you will see how slow tempos are appropriate for “accelerandos” as a possible method of achieving intensity in the dance and impact on the audience.

It is very common in flamenco to relate styles to certain keys. All styles in theory can be played in all keys . Those keys that allow open strings on the guitar broaden the possibility of expression, rhythm and accompaniment of the spanish guitarist.  Please follow the link above to read more on the subject
