P.S. My guitar ensemble plays 'La Morita' all the time. Its one of our favorite rumbas.

Hallo Gerhard,

Guten tag. Es tut mir leid, aber ich spricht nicht viel Deutsch.
I am a flamenco guitarist in the United States, and I'm always looking for new ideas.I have a lot of flamenco books, but I noticed that yours seem to have more detail, more history, and more background information than most.

De todos modos, buenos días de los Estados Unidos, que todo le vaya bien,

David Chu

Hi Mr. Martinez,

I am a flamenco student here in Kansas, USA, and recently I bought the Flamenco Guitar Method 1 and 2 and Rumba Guitar with Cds, videos and score player  and I have been studying your method and I am amazed that I have learned more in 01 month than in 06 months of Flamenco Guitar lessons with a teacher.

I am so pleased with your method. I have bought so many materials about Flamenco guitar and they are so boring, and you showed in your video what we really want to learn. Not just rhythms and Palos however the soloing and phrases, falsetas that is not easy to see in many Flamenco guitar videos.

I would like to thank you for this work and my technique has increased a lot. Please, don’t stop creating good methods like these.

Keep me updated about new DVDs.

My name is Litsa,

and I have been studying Flamenco for two years...I currently a copy of Gipsy Guitar, book and CD!!!! I love it. I was wondering if your Flamenco Guitar Method Book, Volume 1 & 2 will ever be available in English.

Hello Gerhard,

I arose recently your Flamenco book. Really very madly made. You made yourself a quantity of work and are well understandable the examples also for beginners. The pieces on that CD sound also genuinly beautiful. You are really a full blood musician with heart.

Dear Martinez,

... and thought the books very useful indeed.

Hola Maestro,

I really like the concept of being able to watch you because this will help me make sure I am performing something correctly.

I also wanted to express to you my sincerest gratitude.Vol. I have made me a much better guitarist! With other methods I have always been left unsatified and found the material to be too "dry".

I love to practice and play your material. I have even developed the ability to play with a little "aire". People that hear me think I have been playing much longer than I actually have. Your method has been the biggest help and motivation. Thank you.

All the best,
Tom Nunez

Hello Gerhard.

I am a fan of the Flamenco and I have all your Flamenco books. Your instructional method impressed me very much.

Hi, all.

I'm brazillian and bought the FLAMENCO - GITARRENSHULE Band I and Band II, 3 years ago in Zurich.

The method is fantastic and the informations inside the both volumes are very very clear.

Hasta la vista...

First of all - large praise for the two Flamenco books.

I just have a comment to make regarding that interactive CD mentioned. After viewing the QuickTime online showing the music playback with score and speed adjustment, I just have to say that it is very well done. If Gerhard is still following this thread, Gerhard, I've been building interactive multimedia applications for 10 years and that CD displayed on your website is a truly brilliantly designed application! Particularly since it's been built with Director (which is notoriously finicky, flakey and often plain unruly). That's quite an undertaking. Nice work. It's like the TablEdit application but with actual audio AND video (?). Very cool.

I wanted to complement you on all your study books and media. They are the most detailed and easy to use. I thought your work on the DVD was brilliant. Are you considering creating one for Bulerias, Alegrias, etc... Once again thank you for the masterpieces you have created.

Dear sir, For three years now i've been learning how to play flamenco guitar. My teacher showed me the importance of the compas-feeling, as he describes it.
I just saw the demo of the software version of the compas metronome. While this is a very interesting tool
