"Hi, in this class I show you my important arpeggio technique, something we need to master, it obliges us to keep the hand in the same position, it forces us to touch each string with the same strike angle. As a complement we can change the phrasing. If we play it in crotchets we can do it with quavers, triplets or alternating. Any change you make to the mechanics, helps your brain to get used to rhythmic changes. We use this arpeggio exercise to create different exercises, different rhythms and different techniques".

""Hello I'm José Antonio Rodríguez. By my obligation to my culture and flamenco, I want to pass on what time has taught me and what I've achieved throughout my career. With these new streaming classes, I present the authentic scores and high quality videos to learn my concert compositions. Above all, it's a serious work because flamenco nowadays has some very clear rules. This has been a comprehensive project involving a lot of people: transcription, cameras, production and me personally, through my music. I am really proud to be here with all of you, explaining and playing my music. Welcome, I hope my music is interesting, inspiring and enjoyable to all of you. Thank you! Let's start".
