D.- Video Recommendation of the Week:
1) Farruco Dancing without Heel in a Paco de Lucía's Concert
Maybe you wonder “why is Ruben including this video in his GUITAR magazine?” …Well, there is so much to learn from this video. This is a very beautiful Solea por Buleria by Paco which has a very interesting change of rhythm at minute 2:10 from Solea por Bulería to Tangos as a transition to definitely end the piece por Buleria from minute 2:49 on.
But what I would like you to observe the most happens at minute 2:39. Farruco, the dancer, had an accident during his performance as his shoe broke and he remained heeless, but the music continued and he had to solve the problem only with his ability to dance and his talent and charisma. Sometimes we are in such circumstances while performing but there is no reason to be scared, if we have a solid foundation and master the compas, for sure there will be a way to solve any problem successfully! Have fun!
