Basic Classical and Flamenco Techniques

Basic Techniques: Classical and Flamenco (these are some of my earliest videos). The first series covers all the major techniques used in classical and flamenco performance. Later videos detail  progression in the Sagreras method. Eventually this section will be very large.

Basic Techniques. I recommend you watch each of the following videos sequentially before beginning practice out of a method book. They may then be revisited for reinforcement as needed.
