Carlos became interested in a form of flamenco while in Argentina. Argentine folk guitar, is closely related to the flamenco form. Carlos's (great )uncles were skilled players in that field. His uncles lived on a working ranch ,which in fact was open to the public. His uncles wore the traditional "gaucho" attire, while performing for patrons with their music. Carlos was inspired with the art of strumming the guitar solely with the use of fingers, on a nylon string guitar. This type of playing always intrigued him. Not until seeing a Jose Feliciano performance on T.V. did Carlos become truly fascinated; that later drove him to study the art, and finally introduce it to the public. "One never completely masters this music" says Carlos. Always striving to learn more and more.
