Argentine tango is known for its intricate rhythms and irregular tempo, but also for its passionate melodies. This is what makes this dance so sensual and the music so intoxicating! Although the bandoneón is now tango’s most famous instrument, the guitar is the instrument that gave birth to tango. When tango emerged in Argentina in the late 19th century, the guitar formed the rhythmic basis of the first instrumental trios, which also included a violin and a flute.
Camilo will introduce you to guitar techniques used in tango, with its specific rhythms of tango, waltz and milonga, so you can accompany dancers or be part of an ensemble.
The guitar course is open to people of all levels, from beginners to advanced guitarists. A basic knowledge of the instrument is required. It is not necessary to have any knowledge of music theory to participate in the course. The course is suitable for all types of guitar, whether classical, electric or electro-acoustic, and covers a range of techniques. The course content is suitable for those with an intuitive approach to the instrument as well as more advanced students.
Each student, depending on his or her level and skills, will be able to find an appropriate role in the context of tango. Beginners will find it easy to play rhythmic accompaniment roles, while the more advanced can explore solos, arrangements and more.
