Alegria Falseta on C

Difficulty ★★☆☆☆

A falseta for a traditional alegria in E major which breaks away from the standard major (E/A/B7) and minor (Em/Am/B7) chord progressions to create a minor-sounding riff on C natural (hence a falseta on C, not in C). read on »

Buleria

Buleria Falseta

Difficulty ★★★☆☆

This is an arrangement of a falseta Paco de Lucia plays in Jerezana (on La Fabulosa Guitarra De Paco De Lucia). Melodically it moves between the C, Bb, and A chords, which makes it an easy fit most bulerias played por médio. Of course it is Paco we're talking about, so there's a lot that happens in between these changes. read on »
