Subject: RE: Obit: Manitas de Plata, old 'silver fingers'
of course i understand and appreciate that point Don.

my point is that in Spain, there are lots of guitarists playing fast and loose with the flamenco style. i used to love the work of Manuel de Canno - he played guitar and made itsound as big as a cathedral with primitive spring reverb.

either way - the blokes just died. he did nothing that deserves saying he wasn't fit to carry the guitar case of any other artist. it is disrespectful of a great artist's lifetime of endeavour.
