Above all, the book and the video tutorials are not mutually exclusive. We recommend you start with the book and the (free) book videos as it is the foundation of Kai’s method and what inspired this entire website. With a yearly subscription, we throw in the book for free.
First of all, there are a couple of questions that will help you figure out how to get the most out of this site on your flamenco journey: What’s the level of your guitar playing; how much do you know about flamenco; and how much do you want to know about flamenco?
For those already studying flamenco and who just want to get better, the site can be used as a reference, as it has tons of useful videos of topics that might come up, be they about technique, compás, or just putting it all together and understanding how flamenco works. Therefore, if this is you, then we recommend you browse the videos in search of topics that seem useful and see where these lessons take you. If you can’t find information on a specific topic just ask – that’s what we’re here for!
Finally, after these lessons you’ll have enough information to determine whether and how you want to continue with flamenco. In our experience most students either become mildly obsessed with flamenco pretty quickly or realize, just as quickly, that this isn’t quite for them.
It’s always a great idea to make sure you have a good handle on Palmas, the rhythmic underpinning of flamenco.
