  • A lament for the passing of Paco de Lucia (1947-2014)

    It's 3:10am and my mind is still reeling from the news of Paco de Lucia's passing. Even though I am not a full-fledged flamenquista, Paco's influence on me, and countless other guitarists, is undeniable. I feel like l have lost one of my teachers.

    As I always do when I deal with loss, I take to my instrument and just play whatever comes to mind. The improvisation below is not a particular Flamenco form, nor is it a cover of Paco's music, but rather a lament... a cry of anguish for this huge loss for the guitar and the entire musical world. Descance en Paz, Maestro.
