The purpose of CFG Studio’s Grant / Grants is exclusively to encourage & render available to the public worldwide the culture of contemporary flamenco guitar, specifically the works related to Paco de Lucia’s contributions and innovations on the Spanish & compositional musical field as well as in the Flamenco-Jazz realm for guitar players, guitar teachers, composers and beyond.
It’s mandatory that the video (either in video-lesson format or lecture, article, etc) submitted by the applicant has a date prior to June 12th, 2010.
The subject of this video-lesson is:
A right hand strum pattern or technique “rítmica” on Rumba-Tangos that Paco de Lucia innovated and uses extensively. To exemplify this technique Maestro Ruben Diaz uses the Rumba “Manteca Colora”, track no. 6 of Paco de Lucia’s album “Luzia” 1997. To verify the accurateness of the performance the strum is played along with the original recording, then an explanation is given in English & Spanish about the strumming pattern including an exposition in English of the same technique with metronome in 3 different speeds: low, intermediate & fast.
Useful information about the submissions:
To avoid that unscrupulous persons create electronic or graphic related materials with the “Appropriate quotes & dates” just to obtain by cheating the CFG Studio grant / grants.
3) The aforementioned material / materials for the applicant’s submissions must exclude any video-lesson, article or written by Ruben Diaz.
