Rafael Riqueni quote: 'In the depth of art you're unique, I have never seen anything more authentic than this'
Gerardo Nuñez quote: 'I am proud, that Myrddin has been my student.'
In these classes, available in book, DVD and online streaming, Myrddin invites us, to study flamenco techniques, styles and compositions to create an own, unique flamenco guitar style. Myrddin demonstrates an alzapuda and picado technique for basic level; a picado, tremelo and legado for intermediate level and a rasgueado, arpeggio, pulgar for advanced level. All these techniques and the 3 CD compositions are shown and replayed slowly on a split screen with close ups of the left and right hands and an on screen dynamic compas. The accompanying book, having over 100 pages, provides authentic transcriptions, written by R. Bekkers in close collaboration with Myrddin, in both standard music notation and tablature. The DVD has over 30 minutes extra performances and classes of Myrddin to play along. The extras also include intensive interviews with the maestro and his family.
Born in Belgian in 1978 into a very musical family, Myrddin was surrounded by an variety of musical influences from a very young age. In the early 1990's he followed his passion for flamenco and studied with some of the greatest Spanish flamenco guitar maestros such as Gerardo Nunez, Manolo Sanlucar, Enrique de Melchor and Rafael Riqueni. Due to his extensive musical background and his hunger to dig deeper into the heart of his music, Myrddin has created a unique style that moves every audience with his marriage of technique and emotion.
