FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS: Flamenco Guitar Lesson – Spanish Cadence in E minor Solo

Download music here:

I’ve had a few comments about improvising over flamenco chords and in particular over the Spanish Cadence. The Spanish Cadence is a very common chord progression that occurs in Spanish music and flamenco which uses the chords IV – III – II – I. It is usually in a minor key and often occurs n flamenco in guitar keys. From this cadence many pieces are composed and it serves as a building block of a piece often from which one can depart into other music ideas (or return home to). Today I will show you my favourite riffs for improvising over the Spanish Cadence in E minor. I should add that these are just a few ideas of literally thousands of things you can play over these chords but, just like in blues and jazz, they are a good addition to your improv vocabulary.
