Seven or more years into the flamenco game, I am beginning to solidify my vocabulary by memorization. Going beyond just vocabulary, I am studying to know how to form my own sentences, to be able to say more than what has been said.
The challenge now is to understand music in terms of the Phrygian mode, its major, minor, augmented and diminished triads. seventh chords, relative major and minor modes -- how those play together to form the harmonic basis for Flamenco.
