A Flamenco piece here. This is played in the style of a Solea. It is in 12 beats to the bar with accents on 3,6,8,10 and 12. The Soleares is the mother of Flamenco Palos and a lot of other regional styles are based on it. I hope you all enjoy the music. Mike.

Mike, whenever I see one of your posts I know that (a) I'm going to like it and (b) I'm going to learn something. No exception here! I appreciate you taking the time to explain what you are doing, and the musical basis for what we are hearing. More please!

Thank you Joseph. It always surprises me just what you can get out of a Ukulele with a bit perseverance!

Hi Laurence, Thank you for your kind words. It's great that there are all different levels of players and musicians on this forum. And I am placing yourself at the top level in both those departments! Always look forward to your videos!

Thank you Brenda.....I did play in a Flamenco troupe with some excellent dancers. They were also very beautiful.....which of course as nothing to do with how good a dancer they are!!!!!!!!

Thank you Dave. I have heard from Brenda that you have a great collection of real quality ukuleles. Would be great to hear some of them. Especially your LFDMs. You must really enjoy playing them!

Kindest Regards, Mike
