El Viejín, (born José Jiménez in 1963 in Madrid[1]), is a Spanish flamenco guitarist. He is often billed as Josè Jimenez 'El Viejin' . Influenced by Sabicas like many of his contemporaries, he rose to fame as a flamenco guitarist in the late 1970s and 1980s and is one of the best-known Madrid-based flamenco guitarists.[2][3][4] Transcriptions to his works have been created by a Madrid-based guitarist and musicologist Enrique Vargas and published by VG Ediciones [5] In 2008 he was reported to be "in the process of founding the Caño Roto school of flamenco guitar with his long-time friend Enrique Vargas."[6]
