Ravenna Flamenco is an online multimedia magazine geared specifically toward the anglophone flamenco guitarist. RF's goal is to provide information, tools, and resources for the beginning, advancing, and practicing musician

So, you ask, what is the best way to learn the flamenco guitar? That's an easy one: move to Spain, find a mentor--preferably a gypsy--and settle in for five or six, heck, maybe ten years of cartilage grinding accompaniment, mind numbing repetition, and long, thankless hours practicing. What? Can't get the time off work? Well, lucky for us the tried and true method of the circa 1960's expatriate is no longer the only alternative.

Ravenna Flamenco is not your one stop solution. But it is here to help. If you have already performed even the most cursory internet search, you already know that there are dozens of "beginner information" sites, as many tabulature stockpiles, and at least as many lessons, books, and videos--all eagerly awaiting your first payment. Ravenna Flamenco intends to duplicate none of these models: rather, it is designed as a "magazine" precisely in order to fill in the informational gaps that fragmented or fixed offerings leave open.

So how do you use Ravenna Flamenco? Peruse, browse, ask questions, make comments; watch some videos, read some articles, play along with the metronomes. Use the tools and information you find here to broaden your engagement with flamenco and with the guitar.

 



 

What do you think? No, really—I want to know: visitor input is what will allow me to tailor this site to what is useful for those of you who have stopped in here. These comment fields don't require your email or any registration—I just honestly want to know what you like and what you don't like—and what you would like to see more of. So go ahead; lay it on me:
