Spanish guitarists: Manolo, born in Badajoz in 1889 and died in Madrid in 1962; Pepe, born in Badajoz in 1896 and died in Madrid in 1970; and Ernesto, born in Badajoz in 1902 and died in Madrid in 1972. All three were barbers and guitarists, two trades that learned from his father, the Maestro Paco.
