My flamenco guitar was ruined at sea several years ago. I’m asking my nearest and dearest for Xmas and birthday contributions so I can purchase an upgrade. Many blessings!
These last few years I have connected deeply with my flamenco guitar and many of the songs I have crafted, have been adapted to that guitar style. Unfortunately last year my previous flamenco guitar, a beautiful Cordoba I purchased in Manhattan was left out in the rain and ruined on a yacht job by some drunken rebel rouser. We had a good run of 8 plus years and the lesson was learned.
I have been barely getting by playing other people guitars but have a whole plethora of ocean inspired tunes that I want to start sharing with the world and am wanting to get back on track with my guitar practice by investing in a upscale flamenco guitar.
I also am intending to go study flamenco dance, singing, guitar and cajon in Andalusia, Spain in the next few years and am committed to starting to study more technical aspects of flamenco guitar. I feel very inspired by flamenco traditions that are utilizing music and dance to express and transmute some of the intense emotional experiences we all go through in this journey called life. I see being able to alchemize suffering into art as an intrinsic aspect of being alive.
I would love to eventually have an act where I can loop flamenco guitar, rhythm and solos, singing, dance, cajon and electronic beats all together in a unique performance ritual. #goals
