Paco de Lucia youTube Flamenco Guitar
Flamenco Guitar and Paco de Lucia for most of us are one and the same. Paco and his guitar have been on the world stage for some years now. His no nonsense approach has set the benchmark for other players to work towards. Many people became aware of him because of his playing in the trio with John McLaughlin and Al di Meola, or John McLaughlin and Lary Corryell. I have a magnificent recording of him playing the music of Manuel De Falla’s Three Cornered Hat.
This video was recorded just over 30 years ago, so keep in mind the standard that Paco is playing to now. Another player that I also enjoy is Paco Pena, less fiery as de Lucia but still brilliant.
Paco de Lucia’s music has transcended styles and has added a new dimension to Flamenco guitar by using elements of contemporary jazz. Although this music is on nylon string guitar it is more than a worthy addition to this acoustic guitar site as many younger players may not be aware of Paco’s brilliance.
