At last, a long-awaited transcription book of the emblematic CD Almoraima by Paco de Lucía published by Gestión de Lucía (the artist management company) has arrived. This time the author of these charts has been no other than maestro Enrique Vargas, also the director of the collection The Great Flamenco Guitars of Today Library, who had to face the tremendous difficulty of transcribing accurately every little detail of this historic work of art.
In the process of an intense search for a new expressive melodic, structural and harmonic forms in flamenco, the genius guitarist from Algeciras implements in Almoraima various innovations unprecedented for the times: every one of the eight cuts of the CD has more than one - and some times up to five - guitar tracks; electric bass; percussion; a muted guitar track, and, sometimes, oud and singing. All of these elements made the task of transcribing this work tremendously difficult. In spite of this, maestro Enrique Vargas offers in every piece the solutions based on maximum fidelity to the original.
All of these pieces are perfectly playable by solo guitar and a duo (with the exception of the rumba and sevillanas than are only suitable for a duo). Every piece is preceded by annotations in Spanish and English. The charts are presented in notation and tab. The fingerings for both hands and dynamic and technical characteristics are explained in the smallest detail.
