Hello!!

Holy smokes, we have to keep this board alive!

Anywho, does anyone recommend good practice CDs? I'm checking ebay, but it's hard to tell what the music will be like :/ I've actually bought one and it had footwork recorded on it, lol Or! If your teacher sells them, PM me the cost and maybe we work something work so that I can buy one.

Any dance is welcome; although I really need tangos! I already have sevillanas, bulerias, and alegrias, but the last two have decided to hide somewhere.

Ciao!

I rarely come here anymore because it's sad to see it so dead.
About CDs... I don't have any particular recommendations, but if you go to itunes you can listen to samples. They generally only play brief snippets of each song, but you can get a pretty good idea from that.

I've found inspiration for good Flamenco music by going onto YouTube.. and then, seeing if I couldn't find who the artist was who played the music.

A neat discovery:

I was rather annoyed that Amazon had stopped using sound samples on a lot of their albums, but Borders.com has quite a few.

I'm quite out of the groove when it comes to really good Flamenco. When I was working at HMV and Tower people regularly came in, because there was a local class on Flamenco...

And, what really knocked me hollow on YouTube, Paso Dobles:

Hope these help!
