Updated: Jul 18, 2023

Tientos del Mentidero (tientos) composed by Paco de Lucía and played by Juanito Pascual.

The tientos is a 4/4 style of flamenco that has its roots in another flamenco style called the tanguillo which originated in the mid-1800s. The tientos is basically a very slow tanguillo (i.e., 70-90 BPM) written in the Spanish Phrygian mode.
