Bulerías “Ahí Te Quedas”. The inclusion of this piece, or, to be more precise, live recording of a traditional juerga could strike you as somewhat odd on such a modern and sophisticated CD. Nevertheless, it has a profound meaning, an important message to all the flamenco aficionados. On this recording Tomatito, that super modern Tomatito, plays with the ancestral purity and discrete elegance worthy of a genius, as if he were saying: “modernity comes from the tradition. Purity in playing, from the juerga. Feeling, from accompanying the cante. The sense of compás, from playing a lot of rasgueados.” With what sensibility the guitarist from Almería accompanies these letras fiesteras, short and simple, with the same structure of 3 - 4 lines, but at the same time so flavorful and full of soniquete! With simple chords, playing the remates in their appropriate places, with one and only one thumb-driven falseta, in the purest Jerez style... Olé, olé y olé....
Obviously, this transcription is destined to those who wish to learn to accompany the cante. To make the task easier, I transcribed the voice track in its entirety, which also makes it possible to play these bulerías with another musical instrument.
