This book offers the transcriptions of 88 falsetas by Diego (in sol-fa and tablature): Alegría, Siguiriya, Soleá, Soleá por Bulería and above all Bulería (his best "palo"). A short style analysis about Diego del Gastor and a CD having all falsetas interpreted by Diego himself.

 

Diego Del Gastor (Diego Amaya Flores) was born on the 15th of March 1908 at number 8 of calle Ronda in Arriate in Málaga and died in Morón de la Frontera in 1973. As a child he also lived in Ronda and in El Gastor, a village from where his artistic name comes from, due to his fathers work, who was a horse trader.

His brother José and Pepe Naranjo, were his teachers, although Diego always confessed being a staunch follower of Montoya and above all of Niño Ricardo. He took musical theory classes but his great virtue was his rhythm. He developed a completely different form of playing, probably inherited from Paco el de Lucena.

The skill of his thumb and the sobriety of his falsetas soon impressed singers such as Antonio Mairena and moreover, Fernanda de Utrera, who he usually accompanied. His relationship with the Americans in the Morón base was very important, as it is thanks to this that he met Donn E Pohren, an American guitarist from who Diego took some pointers which he incorporated into his playing style. Along with his brother-in-law Joselero, Diego del Gastor is still is the most referent flamenco artist from Morón.
