Flamenco Guitar Q&A: How, When, & Where to Properly Anchor Your Thumb When Strumming (Por Arriba)
In this video lesson for the flamenco guitar, one of our supporters, Yolanda, asks a really good question about the pulgar (thumb), and what to do with it when you are playing in E major.
Quite often, we tend to rest our thumb on the E string (sixth string) when playing falsetas and chords, but sometimes our thumb can get in the way when we need to strum the sixth string. So, in this lesson, I will show you exactly how to solve this problem!
