For example "En la Gruta" is for 2 electric guitars, a classical, a bass and a double bass, "Variámonas" is for violin and piano and "Con Esfuerzo" for one cello and a five strings acoustic bass guitar.

Most of the compositions of these records are for one classical guitar but there are 2 for two classical guitars ("Violinismo" and "Vals de las Áconas"), 2 for two electric guitars and a classical guitar ("Miedo al Fracaso" and "El Secreto del Tiempo"), 1 for Indian Sitar ("La Senda de los Elefantes"), 1 for one classical guitar, one electric guitar and a double bass ("Fantasía Nostálgica") and 1 for one classical guitar and a electric guitar which, at the end are played at the same time: that means one with each hand ("Tormenta"). "Tormenta" is also one of his longest compositions, it lasts 5:39 minutes as well as "El lenguaje de los animales" of 5:41 minutes duration.
