An Aficionado is someone who loves flamenco and knows a lot about it. Once you start to ‘get’ how flamenco works, we consider you an Aficionado! At this point you’re ready for some intermediate flamenco guitar lessons or even some advanced flamenco techniques and material, and we’re here to guide you. The most common question at this point is “what do I learn now?” The truth is that this depends very much on your own goals.
There is no generally accepted order in which one is supposed to learn all of the Palos in flamenco, so I usually recommend to go with whatever inspires you the most. If you’re someone who really sticks with things then you might choose a Palo and learn everything you can about that Palo by completing one of our Series. If you crave variety you may choose to learn the basic Compás and one or two falsetas for a few different Palos. And along the way you’ll want to work on your technique as issues arise or you feel the need to improve.
There are a couple of ways you can use this site to get what you need – you can use our Browse feature to find courses on everything from various Palos to accompaniment, and you can use our Search feature to find specific material, Palos, techniques and tips.
