Diego del Morao buleria falseta

I love this falseta. I’ve heard Diego use it a number of times, and each time he phrases the first couple of compases differently, so this is one version. On the video the rhythm track playing in the background is “Dr Compas” (for iOS). I play it once then repeat it slowly – hopefully it makes it easier to pick up – it definitely helps me when someone posts something then slows it down. Links to download the transcription are below the video.

This is Raphael Rabello’s version of Odeon, by Ernesto Nazareth (originally for piano). I’ve always loved Raphael’s version, the way he weaves in some Granainas at the beginning and towards the end, showing the influence his friend Paco de Lucia had on him at the time.

The video is from a recital I did at Elder Hall, Adelaide last year (2012) as part of an exam. This version is based on a couple of different Raphael Rabello performances, one from the album ‘Cry my Guitar’ and the other from a YouTube clip of a Brazilian TV show.
