Buck Wolters belongs to the very small company of guitar players and composers who are familar with nearly every style. His authentic mix of jazz, world and latin music, combined with a mastery of classical guitar technique is very unique and outstanding. Born in 1961 in Dortmund, Germany, he began to play the guitar as an autodidact at the age of five. After hearing a recording of Big Bill Broonzy he took his first guitar lessons at the age of thirteen, digging into the blues for several years. At the age of sixteen he went to the conservatory in his hometown where he studied classical guitar. The music of Agustin Barrios, Heitor Villa-Lobos and David Qualey were his main influences. After leading the life of a busker in his twenties, he went to the School of Arts in Amsterdam to study jazz guitar and composition and spent most of his time then copying jazz solos from musicians like John Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Pat Metheny and Wes Montgomery. He completed his studies as a bachelor with distinction. Today Buck Wolters is very busy performing, composing, recording and teaching throughout Europe. His greatest success belongs to his composition "Dshamilja" ordered in commission by the Opera of Frankfurt.

Since latin music is very popular today, many fingerstyle or classical guitar players want to add it to their repertoire. These five compositions are intended for those players. Because of the complexity of latin rhythms, special attention should be placed on the independence between the right-hand thumb (bass pattern) and the other right-hand fingers (chord pattern or melody lines). So most of the focus is put on right-hand coordination, while left hand difficulties like stretches or use of the barre are minimized in the compositions. The introduction of each composition (first 4 to 16 bars of each piece) represents the typical rhythmic motion of the certain styles, which are characterized by three elements: 1. The clave (Spanish "key" or "code"), a rhythmic pattern of two bars, which must be kept up throughout the entire piece. Since the clave can be referred to rythmically as the "heart" of each latin style, it is mostly played on good, audible, high-pitched percussion instruments (e.g. woodsticks). Many styles can be recognized by an additional typical percussion pattern (e.g. Bolero and Merengue).

2. The bass pattern.

3. The piano or rhythm guitar pattern.

Practical advice on learning the pieces:

1. Listen to the cd several times.

2. Try to clap the clave of each piece along with the cd. (See the condensed rhythmic pictures on the following pages!)

3. Once you have the clave down try to add your feet tapping on beats "one" and "three".

4. Hit the rhythm of the bass pattern on your body. Once you have it down try to add your feet on "one" and "three".

5. Try the same with the piano/rhythm guitar pattern.

6. Learn the intro of each piece by heart before you start working through the entire piece. This guarantees your ability to keep up the rhythmic feeling of the piece while working through it.

7. Dance to the music and have fun.
