Hey everybody,

I'm wondering if there are any "Flamenco Piano" players out there. It's not a traditional style but it's AMAZING!

A few performers have been doing it lately and it's all very new:
Chano Dominguez

Sergio Monroy

Michel Camilio

All I really know about it is that it basically imitates and builds upon traditional Flamenco Guitar, it uses the Phrygian scale and often does a standard 5 chord progression of Am - G - F - E.

I've searched for piano books on this style but haven't found ANY. Has anyone picked up this style, could anyone point me in the direction of a how-to book or website/forum on the style?

Thanks,

-Armand

Classical or Flamenco sheet music would be treble clef and basic standard notation. You may have to figure out the harmonization (chords). The first one seems like normal left hand chord accompaniment with right hand melody and a lot of scale runs. I guess what I'm saying - I think you could use classical or flamenco sheet music and wing a presentation like you would do from lead sheet music.

But, no I've not heard anyone playing this.

I messed around with flamenco on my steel acoustic for awhile and found all kinds of sheet music using Google. Good ole Google always to the rescue.

I like flamenco piano (http://takelessons.com/category/piano-lessons) a lot. I got a Diego Amador CD in past and he also plays in this style. They copy much the strokes which the guitar does, so it allways sounds a bit like they transposed guitar-compositions for the piano
