~ Flamenco Guitar ~
Flamenco is not understood without the accompaniment of the world-famous Spanish guitar and its characteristic ‘toque’. Neither is conceived a guitar without the work of the guitarists, a centennial art that overcomes the years and still endures in our city.
Through their hands they pass the flamenco guitars that put the chords more linked to flamenco. The touch is not exempt of a purified technique, from “el picado” to the “tremolo”, through the “rasgueado” or “alzapúa”.
The ill-fated Paco de Lucía took the flamenco guitar around the world. At present, Tomatito, Manolo Sanlúcar, Vicente Amigo or Pepe Habichuela, represent the best of the Spanish guitar.
They have been and are an example for many of the guitarists or ‘tocaores’ of Granada, including how could it be otherwise, the Sacromonte, flamenco cradle par excellence. In Tablao La Alboreá we enjoy the best: Rafael Fajardo, César Cubero, José ‘El Pirata’, Manuel Carmona, Camarón de Pitita and occasionally the great Jerónimo Maya.
