Well... it’s clear that you just cannot replicate flamenco guitar right hand techniques with a keyboard :lol:

Good playing skills, though :thumbup:

The choice of sounds, I found the classic guitar a bit unpleasant. The flute and piano just adequate for the part.

In any case, I have always the same feeling when I hear somebody doing entre dos aguas (or mostly any other improvised guitar part): it was an impro! don't do it note by note like Paco de Lucía (he himself wouldn't do it, actually :lol: )

It wasn't intended to be exact replica or style of Paco, mine is better. :headbang:

I used free guitar VST Ample Guitar Lite, it was the best sound that I could get out of it by using Amplification and EQ effects, believe me it can't be better. Better VST classical guitar costs a lot.

Actually, first part of the song (flute) in the original wasn't improvised by Paco a lot, very little. It follows basic melody most of the time.
Second part I just did it as an ending, I wasn't planning to do it except first part.

Song was more intended to be in a relaxing style, not showing off Paco's virtuosity, which was unbelievable.

I'm very impressed by the OP's humility

Out of curiosity, what headphones did you end up buying and did they solve your ‘spatial’ problem? Re- https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/view ... 15&t=70095

I bought Hama HK-260 https://www.whathifi.com/hama/56260/overview for 9$.

They are very good, very nice sound and they are good for mixing.

Sorry no English subtitles.

Here “young” Paco explains how he gathered a few musicians to finish a record with an impro as he had no more tracks and the label was pushing. Then “old” Paco says it had been the 1st time that was done in flamenco: improvise a whole song like it was done in jazz, and also that it was crucial for his career.

In any case, I didnt mean you were trying to show off mate! Just thoughts that come to my mind when I see people executing improvisations note by note.

Fine, then you record it the way you want to, I don't care.
