Spanish term or phrase:camaronero
In the same context as the previous question, could 'camaronero' mean 'to follow blindly'?
Paco de Lucía (guitar player): “Si yo fuera cantaor: Para tener personalidad, agarraría toda esa herencia que dejaron la Niña de los Peines, Chacón, Torres...Y cogería un poco de allí y otro de acá, pero no me quedaría en ser sólo un camaronero.”
Explanation: José Monje Cruz
