Handbuilt Flamenco guitars in Canada???

I'm in the market for a quality hand-built flamenco or flamenco - negra guitar.

Anybody know of a guitar builder in Canada who makes good flamenco guitars. And what should I expect to pay for a quality hand-made instrument.

Juan Martin's flamenco methods

I'm a new member on this site so, first of all, I'd like to say hello to everyone.
So hello all!

Well, I have been playing flamenco for some years now, and I have enjoyed it very much so far.

I have learned almost everything I know from Juan Martin's flamenco methods. But not long ago, I read quite alot of stuff on the web saying Juan Martin's method has bad compas and easily makes you bad habits which will be hard to break.
I really like Flamenco and I think it would be a massive shame if I'd be learning it the wrong way right now.

So I was wondering, has any of you got some (negative?) experience using with Juan Martin's methods regarding bad habits or bad compas?

Thanks in advance!

picado technique...nails or skin?

For the picado technique, are there any member out there that use the skin of the fingers rather than the nail, if that's possible? Or does the string always roll off the skin and hit the nail to play picado? Does using the skin give less contro ald make the picado slower?

What is the best metronome?

Hello Flamenco Lovers,

What is the best metronome if you are concerned about keeping your falseta in time if you play the guitar? I have these options now

1 Oscar Herrero Flamenco Metronome
2 A app for iphone, ipod touch like Beat Vibe or ZuloLabs
4 Or a app for Ipad like graf-martinez cajon loops for garageband ipad
5 ??? (someting else)

I don't have a Iphone, Ipod or Ipad at this moment but the Oscar Herrero Flamenco Metronome is about 300 euro in the netherlands and the Ipod touch 4 8gb is around 150 euro and ipad2 16 gb 450 euro. I want to take it with me that is importent for me! What is the best choise? Let me know your best options!

Greetings Mike
