I recorded this tarantas in May 2008 which is filled with mistakes and even ends with the sound of traffic in West Hollywood coming through my windows. Its been almost a year since this recording and I still haven’t put the final polish on this piece. Perhaps someday soon, I will be motivated to revisit this and work out the kinks. But yeah, probably not.

These are traditional falsetas taught to me by Federico Bestevar in Los Angeles:
