I just saw these two Mexican guitarists today in the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on TV on hour ago. This being the first time I've ever heard of them, I went on youtube to look for more videos. And wow. They're really cool.

I don't want to say they play flameco because then the purists will start complaining, although I don't think there are any here. Lets just say they play flamemco inspired guitar with some rock, jazz, and latin influences. The girl handles the rhythm and the guy plays the leads. Check them out!

Not sure the name of this one but they play some metal around the beginning.

They're amazing guitarists. My music teacher met them and learnt some flamenco.

As can be seen here:

The video is also notable for showing my arch nemesis playing with his balls.

This duo are seriously awesome. The girls strumming hand frightens me.
I'm not usually a fan of the faster stuff on acoustic, but that guy really knows his stuff.
The precussive stuff they do with their guitars is fucking cool.

Last video was awesome.

There was only the one thread, and since it was such a carbon copy of my own point I preferred to bump it. I think nieh uploaded the album or something so I've had it on my iPod for a while, but I was getting frustrated trying to find something to listen to until I hit these guys.

Watching the youtube videos, I agree with coneman - her right hand is full-on terrifying.

Awesome band.

Very talented, and write some great riffs.

Hey, we finally agree on a band. *high five*

While rewatching some of these videos, the youtube ads told me they have a new album out. Gotta go check it out.

Is a tribute album, very good, probably my favourite.

Though the tribute's don't really fit with the individual being attributed.

Like, there's a Hendrix one, and it didn't sound like anything Hendrix would do, not that I'm a fan.

I read about them in Rolling Stone about two years and saw one of their vids a year later on tv. Pretty solid stuff. I like it.

I have loved Tamacun for quite some time. Does any of their music have any vocals or are they purely instrumental?
