Classic Songs with a Flamenco Influence

July 16, 2014


Walk, Don't Run (and bonus lesson!)


 

Sleepwalk

When we released the 55FCE Negra (Limited Edition with Ziricote back/sides) at the Winter NAMM show in January, Cordoba artist, Ben Woods was one of the first to give it a whirl at Winter NAMM. He visited us in Santa Monica last week to record a few classic songs. We hope you like them! The first is a classic surf rock tune, perfect for a summery afternoon. "Walk, Don't Run" is originally by jazz guitarist, Johnny Smith, but you may recognize it from arrangements by Chet Atkins or The Ventures. In this demo, Ben applies his signature flamenco sound and around the 1 minute mark, he even show you how to try it at home! The second song is Sleepwalk, originally by Santa & Johnny. This song was originally arranged for a steel string guitar, but we think the tone of nylon strings nicely emphasise each romantic phrase.

Head on over to our Media page to see more videos from Ben and other Cordoba artists! If you would like to hear or see any particular songs, leave us your recommendations below in the comments section!
