    Regarding the actual lesson plan, big thumbs up. However it is incomplete and often erroneous with the scores themselves (including the exercises).

    I've played from a number of good flamenco books, including the Juan Martin series. I've also got far less good books. I've played a number of flamenco pieces in concert, but I never really felt that I understood the musical structure, and therefore felt uncomfortable improvising. Now...

    , with "The Keys" (goofy name, but rather apt), lots of things are suddenly clear, and i'm quite happy to improvise. Also the solos he gives are great.
