Watch the Intro Soleá online guitar lesson by John Fillmore from Soleares Flamenco Guidebook

As I said in the introduction, we're going to look at the Soleares or Soleá. We are going to open the Soleá with a kind of llamada. This is the moment in Flamenco when, for example, the dancer will give a sign that he/she will either end a piece of footwork or will speed up (displante). So what we are basically doing with the llamada is marking out the accents of the compás.
